TVA recognizes employees
The Tennessee Valley Authority Board of Directors on Thursday recognized the accomplishments of TVA employees this year, that further strengthen public power’s ability to serve the nearly 10 million people in the Tennessee Valley. It reported $11.3 billion in operating revenues for fiscal year 2019, a one percent increase over fiscal year 2018. The financial performance reflected lower sales based on overall milder weather than in 2018. TVA’s total operating expenses were two percent lower than in 2018, driven by lower fuel expense. TVA’s fuel and purchased power expense was four percent lower due to lower natural gas prices and increased hydroelectric generation. Over the past year, TVA supplied 54 percent of the Valley’s energy from carbon-free sources for the entire fiscal year, with a 60 percent reduction in carbon emissions from 2005 levels, and it helped to add or retain more than 66,000 jobs and almost $9 billion in capital investment to the area. In fiscal year 2019 alone, TVA also achieved a net income of about $1.4 billion while reducing its debt by nearly $1.5 billion.
