TVA creates new citizens' advisory council
Originally published April 23, 2013
The Tennessee Valley Authority’s board of directors voted April 18 to establish a citizens’ advisory group that will provide additional input and perspective to TVA on energy resources.
"By establishing the Regional Energy Resource Council, TVA will have a formal channel for receiving diverse perspectives on energy issues on a regular basis," TVA President and CEO Bill Johnson said.
The new advisory group will be formed under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, TVA said. Membership will include a nominee from each governor in the seven-state TVA service area as well as representatives from the Tennessee Valley Public Power Association, local power companies, directly served customers of TVA, business and community members, the academic community and individuals or representatives of organizations on environmental and/or energy issues, the utility said. The council may have up to 20 members.
