TVA Green Power

Green Power Switch is one of TVA’s most exciting environmental programs. It allows people and businesses to choose to purchase “green” energy from the companies that sell the power that TVA generates. TVA generates green power at sites all over the Valley—even at one school.

Green Power Switch began on Earth Day 2000 and is expanding to areas throughout the Valley as more resources for generating renewable power become available. You and your parents can find out how to sign up for Green Power Switch.
