Power Switch News
Green Power Switch is thrilled to welcome seven new East Tennessee distributors:
These distributors now offer their customers a choice in purchasing electricity from renewable resources.
On October 30, 2001, Green Power Switch held the first new-distributor training session since the program launch in April 2000. Each of the seven distributors sent a designated Green Power Switch coordinator to the half-day training held in Johnson City, Tennessee. The training session provided new participants with an overview of the Green Power Switch program, tools to implement a billing system for green power sales, techniques to market the program to their customers, and an overall implementation strategy.
away with proposals
The proposals include a turnkey engineering and construction project to be owned by TVA, as well as purchases of wind energy from independent power producers. TVA is evaluating the bids and plans to select a developer by early 2002. The sites being considered are near Mountain City and Oliver Springs, Tennessee.
TVA held a public meeting on December 3 in Mountain City to provide information and gather comments and concerns from local residents. Over 150 people attended the meeting, many expressing their support. TVAs environmental staff has initiated the environmental review process on the sites, and TVA plans to host more public meetings during January.
