TVA has proposed retiring the Allen Steam Plant and replacing it with a cleaner-burning natural gas facility. The move would support clean air commitments while providing for more flexible generation needs. At the open house, residents can ask questions of TVA staff and provide feedback on the proposal.
Comments gathered at the open house will be included in the final recommendation to the TVA board of directors. The board is expected to vote on the proposal at its August meeting.
