CALEDONIA — The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) board has approved construction of an 880-megawatt gas-fired power plant in Northeast Tennessee and deferred two planned construction projects to upgrade gas plants in West Tennessee and Northeast Mississippi.
The board approved a resolution to re-order TVA’s gas-fired generation projects, using funds and equipment allocated for planned upgrades at the Gleason combustion turbine plant in Gleason, Tenn., and the planned Caledonia combustion turbine plant in Caledonia, Miss., to develop a proposed new combined cycle plant in Northeast Tennessee.
TVA said the new plant is expected to cost approximately $820 million, which is the same range of total estimated expenditures for the Gleason and Caledonia projects. The plant’s exact location and a construction date have not been determined.
