TN Senate Passed Solar-Friendly Resolution

Tennessee Government

On March 20, the Tennessee Senate unanimously passed Resolution 93 which recognizes the need for TVA to support year-round access to renewable energy, including solar power.

The resolution states the Senate’s support for the right of Tennesseans to install renewable energy projects at their homes and businesses. The resolution calls on TVA and its local power companies to facilitate grid interconnections for small renewable energy projects throughout the state with simple, uniform and fair interconnection procedures.

Although the resolution only expresses the opinion of legislators, and is not a bill or law, it acknowledges the need for TVA and local electric distributors to make policy changes. We appreciate the Senate’s 30-0 vote.

Thanks to Lightwave Solar for the head’s up.
