Electric Vehicles - More Efficient, Cleaner and Less Expensive


As it turns out, our region is a great place to own an EV! Over half of all energy produced by TVA comes from carbon free sources such as nuclear, hydroelectric dams and renewable sources like wind and solar. The remainder comes from natural gas and coal plants that have dramatically reduced emissions through TVA’s investments in environmental controls. Learn more about Electric Vehicles here!
