With facilities that generate the electricity to serve more than 8.3 million people, The Tennessee Valley Authority is the nation’s largest public power producer. This unique federal corporation provides affordable, reliable electricity to consumers in the seven-state Tennessee Valley Region. But TVA does much more than generate power. It also works to support economic development in the Valley and serves as an environmental steward of the nation’s fifth-largest river system.
