For economic, environmental, and public safety reasons, we REALLY need to be going with solar.

In a comment below is a link to the place for public comments on this issue. If you care about how we power Tennessee as we move away from coal plants, please make your voice heard. Today (July 15) is the last day of the "scoping period" for public feedback on this issue -- though obviously feel free to keep e-mailing the TVA here as well: nepa@tva.gov.

TVA is hosting an online open house the public can comment on the options being considered for the retirement of the Kingston Fossil Plant. If you care about how Roane County generates its electricity, please attend and make your voice heard on June 29, 2021, from 6:30 – 8:00 EDT.

All retirement options will also include the demolition of the KIF plant. Here are the options currently being considered:

A - Retirement of KIF and construction and operation of a Combined Cycle Combustion Turbine (CC) Gas Plant at the same site;

B - Retirement of KIF, investment in local and regional transmission, and construction and operation of Simple Cycle Combustion Turbine (CT) Gas Plants at alternate locations;

C - Retirement of KIF and construction and operation of Solar and Storage Facilities, primarily at alternate locations.

A link to the virtual scoping open house has been added in the comments below this post.
