TVA suspends renewables program due to "overwhelming demand"

The Tennessee Valley Authority has suspended new enrollments in its "Generation Partners" program for renewable power installations. Citing "overwhelming demand," the utility said it will stop adding new members to the program, which provides a market for residential, commercial and industrial installations of renewable energy systems including photovoltaic and wind as well as cash incentives for the installations.

"This will allow TVA and the local distributors to make some short-term changes that will ensure the program's availability to as many interested residents and businesses as possible," said TWA's website page announcing the change.
