AGENCY: ACTION: This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations (40 CFR 1500 to 1508) and TVA’s procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). TVA has decided to adopt the preferred alternative in its final supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). The notice of availability (NOA) of the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Integrated Resource Plan was published in the Federal Register on July 17, 2015. The TVA Board of Directors approved the IRP and authorized staff to implement the preferred alternative at its August 21, 2015 meeting. This alternative, the Target Power Supply Mix, will guide TVA’s selection of energy resource options to meet the energy needs of the Tennessee Valley region over the next 20 years. The energy resource options include new nuclear, natural gas-fired and renewable generation, increased energy efficiency and demand reduction, and decreased coal-fired generation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TVA is an agency and instrumentality of the United States, established by an act of Congress in 1933, to foster the social and economic welfare of the people of the Tennessee Valley region and to promote the proper use and conservation of the region’s natural resources. One component of this mission is the generation, transmission, and sale of reliable and affordable electric energy. TVA operates the largest public power system in the nation, providing electricity to about 9 million people in an 80,000-square mile area comprised of most of Tennessee and parts of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Kentucky. It provides wholesale power to 155 independent power distributors and 59 directly served large industrial and federal customers. The TVA Act requires the TVA power system to be self-supporting and operating on a nonprofit basis and directs TVA to sell power at rates as low as are feasible. Dependable generating capability on the TVA power system is about 37,200 megawatts (MW). TVA generates most of this power with 3 nuclear plants, 10 coal-fired plants, 9 combustion-turbine plants, 6 combined cycle plants, 29 hydroelectric plants, a pumped-storage facility, and several small renewable facilities. These facilities generated 142.2 billion kilowatt-hours in fiscal year 2014. The major sources for this power were coal (40 percent), nuclear (33 percent), natural gas (13 percent), and hydroelectric (10 percent). Other sources comprised less than 1 percent of TVA generation. Total power delivered to customers in fiscal year 2014 was 161 gigawatt-hours (GWh). A portion of this delivered power was provided through long-term power purchase agreements. The recently completed IRP updates TVA’s 2011 IRP. Consistent with Section 113 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992, codified within the TVA Act, TVA employed a least-cost system planning process in developing the IRP. This process took into account the demand for electricity, energy resource diversity, reliability, costs, risks, environmental impacts, and the unique attributes of different energy resources. Future Demand for Energy TVA uses state-of-the-art energy forecasting models to predict future demands on its system. Because of the uncertainty in predicting future demands, TVA developed high, medium, and low forecasts for both E:\FR\FM\26OCN1.SGM 26OCN1
