TVA is the largest government-owned electricity provider in the United States

By MarketNo Comments

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) operates nearly 34,000 megawatts of electricity generating capacity–the most capacity among government-owned electricity providers in the United States. Balancing authorities like the TVA are responsible for balancing supply and demand for a specific portion of the power system. Sixty-six balancing authorities operate their own portion of the U.S. grid. The TVA covers most of Tennessee and provides over 90% of the state’s electricity. It also covers parts of Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Virginia.The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) operates nearly 34,000 megawatts of electricity generating capacity–the most capacity among government-owned electricity providers in the United States.
