COLUMBIA, Tenn. — The chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority has expressed confidence in the organization following a proposal in the 2014 Obama budget last week that suggested a possible sale of the public utility.
At a Thursday board meeting, Bill Sansom said the board welcomes a proposed strategic review of the agency and any suggestions for ways to better serve the people in its seven-state region.
Sansom said he believes TVA is a good model and the review will also be good. But he also said some areas need improvement and suggested that making those improvements could help TVA in the upcoming review.
The board also approved creating an advisory council on energy resources. Among other things, the council would advise staff on energy efficiency and renewable energy.
