TVA to Hold Virtual Open House on Proposed Transmission Project

TVA will hold a virtual open house on its website for public input on plans for a proposed transmission project in Sequatchie County, Tennessee.

The proposed project consists of 7 miles of new single-circuit transmission line to serve the new Lewis Chapel 161-kilovolt substation planned by Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative.  This project would allow for growth and provide more reliable power for the area.

The map shows the alternative location of the proposed transmission routes TVA is considering.  More detailed maps and additional information are available at  A link to the virtual open house will be available from this webpage from Nov. 18 to Dec. 20, 2021.

Property owners and members of the public can submit questions and comments online, by telephone or in writing.

TVA is interested in receiving comments concerning how this project may affect the environment, historic properties or any other issues associated with this proposal.  Comments will be considered in reaching a decision on location of the new transmission facilities.  Any written comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record.

If you are not able to access the virtual open house but have questions or comments, please contact Les Warnock.  All written comments on this proposed action should be sent to TVA at the address below no later than Dec. 20, 2021.
