TVA Wind-Turbine Construction Begins

August 2000 - The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is installing three, 660-kilowatt wind turbines at a reclaimed strip mine site after being rebuffed at another site late last year. When operational this fall, the turbines will supply six million kWh annually for TVA's Green Power Switch pilot program. TVA is also installing solar photovoltaic facilities in the region and will be purchasing electricity from a new landfill methane project.

Customers of 12 TVA-supplied distribution utilities can purchase 150-kWh blocks of green power for an extra $4.00 per month. According to the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, about 1,800 residential and 100 commercial customers have signed up for the program to date.
