About the TVA Region

Energy Intensive

When energy is a raw material, or a significant percentage of your cost to produce goods, TVA has the infrastructure to deliver. Dating back to the beginning of TVA and how we supported the aluminum companies, we continue to invest in strategic partnerships in order to deliver low cost, reliable energy for those energy intensive industries such as chemical and metal.
