From I-40 and every highway in between, if you’ve driven across the region, you’ve probably seen the TVA dams that make clean energy and help maintain lakes and rivers. That’s part of what we do. Every day 10,000 TVA team members across hundreds of roles provide clean, reliable and affordable electricity, create prosperous communities through economic development and job creation, and uphold an environmental stewardship program that has created some of the most beautiful and productive waterways in the United States.
At our core: TVA provides electricity for 153 local power companies serving 10 million people (that’s a lot!) in Tennessee and all across our seven-state region. TVA also provides electricity directly to 57 large industrial customers and federal installations, all while providing flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system, and assisting local power companies and regional governments with economic development efforts.
