Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)
Is your refrigerator running?
This program was conceived to provide power production, navigation, flood control, erosion control, fertilizer manufacturing, and general economic development in the hard-hit Tennessee Valley region.
What are we? What do we do?
We provided electricity to 7 states!
The Tennessee Valley Authority is the nation’s largest public power provider, generating electricity that serves nearly 9 million people through local utilities.
The TVA generates electricity at 29 hydroelectric dams, 11 coal-fired plants, 11 combustion-turbine sites, three nuclear plants, a pumped-storage hydropower plant, and 18 green-power sites that employ wind turbines, methane gas, and solar panels.
