Site Selection Magazine has named Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) as one of the nation’s top ten utilities. TVA, through distributors MLEC and Dickson Electric, provides reliable electricity to Hickman County.
Site Selection begins its description of TVA’s economic development efforts, “Once again, one of the paragons of utility economic development practice had a successful year. It helped create 45,000 jobs (down from 53,000 in 2006), but the investment total was up to a record $5.6 billion from $4.2 billion the year before.” (more…)
In addition to being a great partner in helping to attract, retain and expand industry in the area, TVA provides help to their customers in maximizing energy efficiency and minimizing energy costs. Their programs are listed on our energy page on our new business website, www.business.hickmantn.org/energy.htm .
