TVA thinks guidelines made solar too profitable

MetroPulse's Rikki Hall reviews TVA's suspension of its Generation Partners program and lays the cause primarily at the feet of a planned Knoxville solar installation built strictly to generate electricity to sell back to the utility.
    
Efficient Energy of Tennessee, a 10-employee Knoxville company founded by Robbie Thomas, plans a 1-magawatt solar array on six acres near Strawberry Plains. TVA's pricing combined with federal incentives will make the generation facility profitable, according to the article.
