TVA Eliminating Energy Efficiency Rebates

The Tennessee Valley Authority is discontinuing nearly all of the utility bill rebates offered under its eScore energy efficiency program by Sept. 15, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel. Funds for eScore, which offered rebates to customers who installed energy efficiency upgrades, will be redirected to programs assisting low-income families in Nashville and Memphis.

Southern Alliance for Clean Energy Director Stephen Smith told the News Sentinel he feels TVA is “abandoning their commitment to energy efficiency. They’re putting a few million in high visibility weatherization approaches [in Nashville] and in Memphis, [but] the need is so great that barely scratches the surface.” — By Kevin Ridder
