The Tennessee Valley Authority has again been named to Site Selection magazine’s annual list of the top utilities in economic development.
TVA is one of ten power companies on the 2012 list. Another ten companies received honorable mention.
The magazine credits Knoxville-based TVA for helping “garner $4.9 billion and 43,000 jobs for its region last year.”
The Knoxville region got its share of government largesse earlier this week with Gov. Phil Bredesen’s announcement of Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants.
The governor did a good job of spreading the money around, delivering more than $9.2 million to 100 cities and counties. The grants are part of the Recovery Act money flowing out of Washington, D.C.
