TVA Chairman Johnson is a Nuke man. A bad actor of a nuke man but a nuke man none the less. Is that why solar is being slowed down in Tennessee? Or is it because TVA can't put a meter between us and the sun?

“Solar is a cost-competitive resource, and Tennessee has immense potential which, if seized, would mean an influx of well-paying solar jobs and economic benefits for the state,” says Sean Gallagher, SEIA’s vice president of state affairs. “Unfortunately, TVA’s Distributed Solar Solutions program and the results of a 2017 utility-scale request for proposal have continuously been delayed without explanation.”

...“TVA’s lack of a coherent solar procurement strategy has created business uncertainty that is hurting Tennessee’s economic development goals, as large industrial customers are looking to other states for access to clean energy.”
