Last month MLGW leadership recommended to its Board of Commissioners that the utility award a long-term partnership agreement to the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). TVA’s proposal includes a 3.1% decrease in base rate charges and up to 5% in acquired renewables to meet energy needs. The proposal requires a 20-year contract.
MLGW’s Board is considering the recommendation. All customer comments and feedback from next week’s listening sessions will be shared with utility Board members.
