The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) now compliments the small generation Green Power Providers Program by providing incentives for mid-sized renewable energy generators between 50kW and 20MW to enter into long term price contracts. The goal for total production from all participants is 100MW, with no more than 50MW from any one renewable technology.
Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and participating power distributors of TVA power offer a performance-based incentive program to homeowners and businesses for the installation of renewable generation systems from the following qualifying resources: PV, wind, hydropower, and biomass. The long term Green Power Providers program replaces the Generation Partners* pilot program. The energy generated from these renewable generation systems will count towards TVA's green power pricing program, Green Power Switch.
TVA offers the Energy Right Solutions Program to commercial and industrial facilities. In addition to prescriptive rebates for lighting, motors, HVAC, and kitchen equipment, administrators take a custom baseline of pre-installation demand and compare to post installation measurements to determine the financial incentive amount in kilowatt-hour values. The incentives program is offered along with complimentary energy assessments and reviews to determine potential areas for savings.
These rules state the standards for classification of water supply. Each stream in North Carolina has a classification based upon its designated uses. These rules provide the Environmental Management Commission a method of setting standards. The rules also establish the physical, chemical, and biological standards required to protect each stream class. Each stream in North Carolina has an index number based upon its river basin and location within that basin. The rules also list by basin and index number the classification for each stream.
The rules in this Section set forth the requirements for application and issuance of permits for stormwater management systems. These requirements to control pollutants associated with stormwater runoff apply to development of land for residential, commercial, industrial, or institutional use but do not apply to land management activities associated with agriculture.
