MLGW Board to Continue Receiving Public Comments Until Final Power Supply Vote
October 2, 2022
During a September 1, 2022 Memphis Light, Gas and Water Special Called Board of Commissioners meeting, President and CEO J.T. Young recommended awarding the Tennessee Valley Authority a long-term contract for supplying power to MLGW under MLGW’s renewable and other alternative resources RFP.

While the Board takes the matter under advisement, they will continue to take comments until the Board takes a final vote.

“On September 1, as part of the Power Supply recommendation to the MLGW Board, President J.T. Young suggested a minimum public comment period of 30 days,” stated MLGW Board Chairman Mitch Graves. “In keeping with that suggestion, the Board plans to continue to hear related public comments until a final vote is taken, which is likely to be sometime later this year. Such comments can be made at scheduled Board meetings, via email at or at any community meeting that may be held. All comments will be provided to the Board for their consideration prior to a vote. While the Board will continue to hear public comments, the Board has no plans to hear any further formal presentations on this matter.”
