Haywood and Fayette Counties County, Tennessee

Memphis Regional Megasite Transmission Project

TVA is considering transmission line routes that will provide power to the new Memphis Regional Megasite, located in Haywood County.

Through a project funded by the State of Tennessee, TVA is identifying possible transmission routes from existing lines to the megasite. Depending on the electrical needs of industry locating at the megasite, new transmission lines from either TVA’s existing South Jackson-Cordova 161-kilovolt Transmission Line or the Lagoon Creek-Cordova 500-kilovolt Transmission Line would be identified for construction.
