Stephen Smith is a warrior for clean energy. TVA wants to stamp him out and the competition he sees as a viable energy future.

"To me, it is devastating and makes no sense that TVA and the incumbent utility entities are opposing this sustainability cooperative which plans to come in and provide clean, renewable energy, storage and a microgrid that actually supports lowering the energy costs for industry in the Jackson area," said Stephen Smith, executive director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.

Smith said the type of microgrid and solar array proposed by the Jackson Sustainability Cooperative represents a significant part of the future of America's power generation as electricity moves away from central source generation from major coal or nuclear power plants and more to a distributed model with smaller renewable energy generation and storage."
