The Tennessee Valley Authority will raise electric rates by 1.5 percent in October, marking the second consecutive year of such a rate increase. Robert Rickman has more...



TVA President Bill Johnson said the base rate increase is less than the rate of inflation and should cost the typical household about $1.70 more per month, or just over $20 more a year for the average residential electric user.

TVA will spend a record high $3.5 billion in new capital projects in fiscal 2015 to pay for completion of the Watts Bar Unit 2 reactor, new natural gas plants to replace the Paradise and Allen coal plants, and new scrubbers at the Gallatin Fossil Plant near Nashville, among other major projects.
