TVA Launches New Renewable Power Initiative, Continues Generation Partners Growth


Tennessee Valley AuthorityKnoxville, TN – The Tennessee Valley Authority has added another source to its growing renewable power portfolio with the announcement Friday of a new TVA initiative for mid-size renewable generators.

The TVA Renewable Standard Offer will encourage more renewable development within the region by allowing developers to enter into long-term price contracts with TVA. These new renewable projects may be capable of producing between 201 kilowatts and 20 megawatts of electricity. The Renewable Standard Offer Program was designed to accommodate projects that are too large for TVA’s Generation Partners program, which was developed for residential and small commercial customers that generate 200 kilowatts or less.

A number of states and utility companies purchase renewable power from developers, or excess power produced by customer renewable power systems, using a set price, or “standard offer” to encourage the growth of solar, wind and other forms of electricity that emit no pollution or greenhouse gases. «Read the rest of this article»

Ceramic Artist Rose Visits APSU for Artist Lecture Series on October 12th


Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – The bird, perched on the rim of a cup, was smooth, and in the right light, gave off a greenish sheen. It was beautiful, but it looked unlike any bird in existence. 

That’s because the animal, in spite of all its elaborate detail, was not real. It was a work of art. The great ceramicist Peter Rose used thrown and press molded pieces of clay to create the ornate bird. At 7:00pm on October 12th, he’ll visit Austin Peay State University’s Trahern Building to give a talk about his craft as part of the APSU Artist Lecture Series. The series, sponsored by the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, brings renowned artists to campus to discuss their work with students and the community. «Read the rest of this article»
