Despite an initial setback (see 11/99) with a wind project site, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is moving forward with its green pricing pilot program. By the spring of 2000, TVA plans to obtain 3 MW to 6 MW of power from wind, solar or landfill-gas facilities that will be constructed in or near the TVA region. The green power will be test-marketed by 10 of TVA's distributors, which will offer the power to their customers at a premium of $2 to $10 per month. According to TVA, it has received several proposals to locate wind turbines at other sites.
