TVA launches initiative to study small power-producing sites
Published: June 11,2014
NORTH MISSISSIPPI — The Tennessee Valley Authority is studying the value of electricity produced from small, dispersed sites, such as solar, wind or small gas turbine installations.
According to a news release from the utility, the initiative will develop methods to set the value of distributed generation to the electric grid and the value of the grid to the small energy producer. TVA will undertake the study with the help of local power companies and other stakeholders.
Solar energy will be the first resource investigated. The process is expected to last through the end of 2014. Public comments will be accepted and stakeholder group information will be posted at www.tva.gov/dgiv.
Currently, the utility relies on large, centralized power plants for most of its electricity.
