Solar industry calls for market driven approach to TVA solar programs
Industry group urges TVA to reconfigure solar programs to meet market demand, retain 
workforce and enable clean, low cost energy in the Valley
 
Knoxville, Tenn.—TenneSEIA, the state business association representing the solar 
industry, responded to the closure of TVA’s solar programs today by publically urging the 
authority to abandon the practice of setting arbitrary calendar year caps on solar 
installations and instead, adopt a market driven model that decreases incentives based on 
the amount of solar installed and incorporates the value of solar energy into the budgeting 
process. TenneSEIA hopes to resolve these issues prior to the TVA Board of Directors 
voting on the 2014 budget at its August 22nd meeting in Knoxville.
