TVA boosts economic development
Once again, TVA tops the list of utilities for its economic development record. This is the 14th year in a row TVA has been honored by Site Selection magazine for being in the top 20 in the country. Bringing jobs and investment to the Valley is part of TVA’s central mission to make life better for the people in the region. Because of the efforts of TVA’s Economic Development team the magazine has recognized TVA as one of the top Utilities in Economic Development this year. TVA was selected from more than 3,300 electric utilities nationwide for the award, and this year marks the 14th consecutive year TVA has received this honor. “It’s very gratifying to receive this recognition, and we are proud to know that we are making a difference for the people we serve,” said General Manager, for Global Business Heidi Smith. “Economic development is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service, and our team is committed to furthering that mission by helping to foster growth in the Valley.” Economic Development works to attract new jobs and investment to the Valley, engage with existing industries, and serve, with partners to help facilitate economic growth. Last year, TVA created 65,400 jobs and made a record $11.3 billion in investment in attracting businesses to the Valley. Community development programs also play an important role in TVA’s Economic Development.
