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.
'''''Note: TVA has approved enough applications to meet the MW goals for this program for 2013, and is no longer accepting applications. However, based on current project completion rates, TVA expects 2.5 MW of reserved capacity to come available in August due to reserved projects not meeting their six-month completion deadline. Of this total, 0.5 MW will be reserved for Fast Track projects less than 10 kW. Applications will be accepted starting August 1, 2013. '''''
