Final Environmental Assessment
Rate Change Proposal
Modification of Rate Structure for Pricing of Wholesale Electricity to Distributors Within the TVA Power Service Area
TVA has proposed restructuring its wholesale electric power rates to better align them with the current cost of service and the competitive market that surrounds TVA. This final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact present TVA’s analysis of the effects of several different alternatives for revising the current rates. TVA’s goal is to continue to supply affordable, reliable electric power to the distributors and consumers in the region at the lowest feasible rates.
TVA considered a No Action Alternative and five action alternatives that represented the potential range of alternatives and their effects on consumer classes. Each alternative evaluated as a change in TVA policy is termed a rate change, which would reallocate cost recovery among different customer classes but not increase total TVA revenue compared with current rates.
