This is the 44th most electricity plants associated with a supplier out of the 3511 suppliers providing power that we observe in the country.
Tennessee Valley Authority does not offer net metering options to their customers. Net metering would allow citizens to sell kilowatt hours back to their electricity company, which makes the purchase of solar and other electricity sources a cheaper project.
