Tennessee Valley Public Power Association
The Tennessee Valley Public Power Association is an organization of local distributors of TVA power that provides business services to its members and serves as an advocate for local power distributors.
The association provides TVA with suggestions and advice on existing and possible research and development projects and in many cases supplies venues for demonstration research projects carried out in partnership with TVA.
The use of electricity by consumers is a critical area where important technology breakthroughs are being made affecting how much electricity needs to be generated. Research in energy efficiency and utilization and grid modernization is facilitated through partnering between TVA and local power distributors.
