UT: Federal sale of TVA could lead to breakup

Print | Front Page | Email this story

KNOXVILLE (AP) — A new University of Tennessee report finds that if the federal government decides to go ahead with divesting the Tennessee Valley Authority, the public utility could be broken up among several private power generators in the region.

The study conducted by the school's Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy was released on Monday. It finds that it would be unlikely that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission would approve the sale of the entire TVA to a single company.

President Barack Obama's 2014 budget proposal calls for a strategic review of the TVA, the nation's largest public utility with 9 million customers in seven states from Virginia to Mississippi.

The TVA was created in 1933 to control flooding and bring electricity to rural Appalachia.
