TVA retools solar energy incentive program
Published: September 9,2011
NORTH MISSISSIPPI — The Tennessee Valley Authority is revamping its pilot Generation Partners program that encourages solar energy projects after a surge of requests from large commercial interests.
John Trawick, TVA senior vice president of commercial operations and pricing, told the Knoxville News Sentinel the program is returning to its original focus on small solar installations for houses and small businesses.
Gil Melear-Hough, president of the Tennessee Solar Energy Institute, said the project is a victim of its own success.
There is a $5-million shortfall between what TVA pays Generation Partners participants for power and how much money is provided from Green Power Switch customers. Those customers agree to pay more to purchase energy generated by solar, wind and biomass.
The changes take effect after Sept. 16.
