TVA plots new future with stagnant or declining demand for power

Quote:
TVA's total power load last year was down by more than 10 percent from a decade ago and the federal utility projects demand for electricity will be essentially flat or down even more over the next decade. TVA, which long banked on annual electricity growth of as much as 7 percent, now predicts power demand in 2027 will be nearly 13 percent below the peak level reached 20 years earlier in 2007.

Is Trump's proposal to dump TVA really such a loony idea?

Quote:
Although TVA operates without taxpayer infusions, it also doesn't pay taxes, and its payments in lieu of taxes total far less than a private utility would pay to support local government. TVA has tended to be lackadaisical about debt. As a government entity, it can borrow more cheaply than private enterprise, and its debt has, at times, approached its $30 billion ceiling, though it's now on a downward trajectory.
