Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
By a Notice in the Federal Register (73 FR 76736, December 16, 2008), the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) initially requested comments on certain standards that TVA is considering adopting for itself and the distributors of TVA power pertaining to certain energy efficiency and Smart Grid standards. The standards being considered are Integrated Resource Planning, Rate Design Modifications to Promote Energy Efficiency Investments, Consideration of Smart Grid Investments, and Smart Grid Information listed in section 111(d) of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (Pub. L. 95-617) as amended by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-140). TVA staff has developed a report that reviews each standard and makes a preliminary recommendation with respect to each standard. TVA has posted the report on the TVA Web site (http://www.tva.com/purpa). The standards will be considered on the basis of their effect on conservation of energy, efficient use of facilities and resources, equity among electric consumers, and the objectives of the Tennessee Valley Authority Act. As part of the process of considering the standards, comments are requested from the public on the TVA staff report. TVA is also extending the comment period on the standards themselves, which are set out below.

Document Number: E7-17722
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-10
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
The Tennessee Valley Authority (``TVA'') seeks public comment on a proposed rule that would govern access to TVA information and records in connection with legal proceedings in which neither the United States nor TVA is a party. The rule, tracking similar regulations issued by many other federal agencies, would establish guidelines for use in determining whether TVA employees will provide testimony or records relating to their official duties. The rule would also establish procedures for requesters to follow when making demands on or requests to a TVA employee for official documents or to provide testimony. The proposed rule will standardize TVA's past practices, promote uniformity in decisions, conserve the ability of TVA to conduct official business, preserve its employee resources, protect confidential information, provide guidance to requestors, minimize involvement in matters unrelated to TVA's mission and programs, avoid wasteful allocation of agency resources, and avoid spending public time and money for private purpose.

Document Number: E7-15955
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-15
Agency: Tennessee Valley Authority, Agencies and Commissions
This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality's regulations (40 CFR parts 1500 to 1508) and TVA's procedures implementing the National Environmental Policy Act. On August 1, 2007, the TVA Board of Directors decided to adopt the preferred alternative identified in TVA's Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS), Completion and Operation of Watts Bar Nuclear Plant Unit 2, Rhea County, Tennessee. A Notice of Availability of the FSEIS was published in the Federal Register on June 23, 2007. Under the selected alternative, TVA has decided to meet the need for additional baseload capacity on the TVA system and maximize the use of existing assets by completing and operating Watts Bar Nuclear Plant (WBN) Unit 2. The unit would be completed as originally designed incorporating additional modifications made to its sister unit, WBN Unit 1, which has been operating since 1996. No expansion of the existing site footprint would be required to complete construction of Unit 2. TVA has prepared the FSEIS to update the extensive environmental record pertinent to the proposed action. In addition to the FSEIS, TVA conducted a detailed scoping, estimating, and planning (DSEP) study. TVA used information from the DSEP and the FSEIS to make the decision to complete construction and to operate Unit 2.
