It is the first delivery from contracts TVA has signed to purchase up to 1,380 megawatts of renewable wind energy from the Midwest.
The statement said the Iberdrola Renewables deal is the largest of TVA’s wind power contracts.
TVA has about nine million consumers in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
