CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — In the latest draft of a long range power plan, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has set it’s sights on increased solar energy generation.

Sighting cost advantages, the nation’s largest utility is looking to generate an additional 4 – 9 GW of solar energy by 2040. The TVA draft report also calls for further decreases in coal generation in that time.

“The amount depends on several factors, but renewable energy is predicted to increase and coal generation to decrease in all 30 approaches analyzed by TVA in its draft Integrated Resource Plan for 2040.” (via The Washington Post)
