TVA Settlement Funds Energy Efficiency Projects

Thirteen Kentucky organizations will receive grant funding next year under a settlement between the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Environmental Protection Agency for alleged violations of the Clean Air Act. The TVA settlement money is meant to go to environmental mitigation projects in the TVA service area. Greg Guess is the director of Kentucky’s Division of Efficiency and Conservation. He says the energy savings that the grant money will facilitate are significant. A portion of the money will go to Fayette County Public Schools to track energy consumption on a real-time basis.
