MLGW Power Supply Alternatives

At MLGW, we always want to provide the most reliable and affordable utility service for our customers. To that end, MLGW commissioned a study by GDS Associates, Inc. to evaluate alternatives, including a proposal by Nuclear Development LLC.  Subsequent to the GDS study, several other recommendations have been made regarding MLGW’s power supply. Seeking alternative power sources is a decision MLGW doesn’t take lightly as a reliable, cost-effective power supply is critical to our community’s economic viability and the overall quality of life of our residents.  

As part of weighing our power source options, MLGW will develop an Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) Plan. The IRP process is an industry standard approach for utilities to assess optimal resources needed for the long-term electricity supply to meet the needs of their customers. 

Recently, MLGW released a request for proposals (RFP) to qualified firms to accurately determine the most viable options should we elect to procure electricity from sources other than TVA. 
A community advisory committee will also provide input that will be taken into account when deciding our most effective and reliable options.
