2022 Tennessee Valley Solar Conference + Storage
SAVE THE DATE!
2021 Solar Champions
At the conclusion of the 2021 Tennessee Valley Solar Conference + Storage on October 13th we announced that Jody Wigington of Morristown Utilities and Greg Williams Appalachian Electric Cooperative.
These two Local Power Companies, under Jody and Greg's leadership formed a cutting edge partnership to solve a pressing problem in the TVA Flexibility program. Many Municipalities have high loads and limited land, making them great candidates to enjoy savings from TVA with Solar, but limiting their ability to capture this benefit due to local real estate constraints. Through a highly creative partnership, these two utilities have teamed up to overcome this problem by combining their Flexibility loads, for a larger co-located array. As larger arrays can produce power at a lower rate, this also provided a direct benefit to their ratepayers. We believe this provides a model for other Local Power Companies across the Valley.
2021 Lifetime Achievement Award
Matt Beasley and Matt Brown win 2021 Lifetime Achievement in the Solar Industry!
Matt Beasley highlighted his key role in the solar industry during the morning Fireside about solar and economic development, a key message which has had a major impact on the industry, not to mention the years he served on the TenneSEIA Board!
Beasley had to collect the other award for Matt Brown who was not able to attend in person, but we will give him a moment to shine at the Annual Meeting. Brownie has had a powerful impact on the industry from his early days at TVA, his role growing solar with his work with Silicon Ranch and his policy work, focused on the LPC community from his leadership roles with TenneSEIA.
