TVA encourages growth in region
The Tennessee Valley topped more than $8 billion in major new business investments in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30. TVA's economic development department worked on projects totaling $8.2 billion in fiscal 2017. Those businesses are projected to directly add more than 70,000 jobs and spur thousands of other indirect jobs in TVA's seven-state region. The record helped TVA to be named a Top 10 utility for economic development this year by Site Selection magazine for the 12th straight year. However ther numbers were down from the record $8.3 billion of investments last year. Since 2013, TVA's average price of electricity has dropped about 2 percent, but industrial rates have come down even more. It's industrial rates are now the lowest among 19 of regional electric producers. And it is ninth lowest nationally. TVA recruits businesses with programs including Valley Investment Initiative. It provides incentives for existing and new companies based on their long-term capital investments, jobs, energy efficiency and power usage.
