November 2019 Newsletter
Apply for capacity into TVA's solar program by Dec 1
TVA logo
In the seven-state Tennessee Valley Authority area, TVA's Green Power Providers (GPP) program is the only viable way to sell your solar generation to the grid. As you might know, TVA will not accept new GPP applications next year.

Current participants' 20-year agreements will not be affected, but if you want to expand your existing system, 2019 is the last year to apply for an expansion.

If you want to build a new residential or small commercial solar project next year without battery storage, or if you want to expand your existing GPP system, let us know as soon as possible. In order to allow time for local power companies and TVA to process and approve your Capacity Reservation Request form by the end of the year, LightWave Solar needs to have your project contract signed by December 1.
Are you an existing customer or have you been in touch with us before? Simply reply to this email. For brand new inquiries, please complete our online contact form.
TVA is accepting comments on GPP changes until Nov 8
TVA's Board of Directors voted earlier this year to close the Green Power Providers program contingent upon a successful Environmental Assessment. TVA issued a Draft Environmental Assessment for Changes to the Green Power Providers Program last month. TVA is accepting public comments until this Friday, Nov. 8.

While it is a fairly complicated document, LightWave Solar encourages you to leave a comment regarding the impact of closing the Green Power Providers program. LightWave is asking TVA to keep the current Green Power Program open next year while also creating a Qualified Installer Network.
