AGENCY: ACTION: The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has decided to adopt the preferred alternative in its final environmental impact statement (Final EIS) for the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). The TVA Board of Directors approved the IRP and authorized staff to implement the preferred alternative at its August 22, 2019 meeting. This alternative, identified as the Target Power Supply Mix in the Final EIS, 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 continued investment in TVA’s hydroelectric resources, license renewal for nuclear resources, expansion of solar and natural gas-fired generation, increased energy efficiency, demand response, and energy storage, and decreased coalfired generation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 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 nation’s largest public power system, providing electricity to nearly 10 million people in an 80,000-square mile area comprised of most of Tennessee and parts of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Virginia. It provides wholesale power to 154 independent local power companies and 58 directly-served large industries and federal facilities. The TVA Act requires the TVA power system to be self-supporting and operate on a nonprofit basis and directs TVA to sell power at rates as low as feasible. Dependable generating capability on the TVA power system is approximately 37,500 megawatts (MW). TVA generates most of the power it distributes with 3 nuclear plants, 6 coal-fired plants, 9 natural gas-fired combustion turbine plants, 8 natural gas-fired combinedcycle plants, 29 hydroelectric plants, a pumped-storage hydroelectric plant, a diesel-fired facility, and 14 small solar photovoltaic facilities. TVA has gas-cofiring potential at one coal-fired site as well as biomass co-firing potential at its coal-fired sites. A portion of this delivered power is provided through long-term power purchase agreements. In fiscal year 2018, TVA efficiently delivered 163 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity to customers from a power supply that was 39 percent nuclear, 26 percent natural gas-fired, 21 percent coal-fired, 10 percent hydroelectric, and 3 percent wind and solar. The remaining one percent results from TVA programmatic energy efficiency efforts. TVA transmits electricity from generating facilities over 16,200 circuit miles of transmission lines. Like other utility systems, TVA has power interchange agreements with utilities surrounding its service territory and PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48987 purchases and sells power on an economic basis almost daily. TVA completes IRPs to determine the most effective energy resource strategies that will meet demand for electricity in its service area over a 20-year planning period. The recently completed IRP updates TVA’s 2015 IRP. Consistent with Section 113 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992, codified within the TVA Act, TVA employs a least-cost system planning process in developing its IRPs. This process takes into account the demand for electricity, energy resource diversity, flexibility, 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 peak load (in MW) and annual net system energy (in gigawatt-hours, GWh) through 2038. Peak load is predicted to change at average annual rates of +0.3 percent in the medium-load forecast (Current Outlook Scenario), ¥0.7 percent in the low-load forecast, and +1.7 percent in the high-load forecast. Net system energy is predicted to remain flat in the medium-load forecast, decline at an average annual rate of 1.5 percent in the low-load forecast, and grow at an average annual rate of 2.0 percent in the high-load forecast. Based on these load forecasts, TVA’s current firm capacity (TVA generation, energy efficiency and demand response measures, and power purchase agreements), and including planning reserve margins of 17 percent for the summer peak season and 25 percent for the winter peak season, TVA would need additional energy resources in the future. The medium-load case needs are about 2,700 MW of additional capacity and effectively no additional energy by 2028, growing to about 5,600 MW and 1,700 GWh by 2038. Alternatives Considered Five alternative energy resource strategies were evaluated in the Draft EIS and IRP. These resource planning strategies were identified as potential alternative means of serving future electrical energy demands on the TVA system while meeting least-cost system planning requirements. These alternative strategies were: Strategy A—Base Case (No Action Alternative): This strategy represents the continued implementation of the 2015 IRP, but also reflects subsequent E:\FR\FM\17SEN1.SGM 17SEN1
