Tennessee has relied on power generated by burning coal for decades, but it seems like that's finally going to be coming to an end in the not so distant future. Solar power hasn't been ingrained into Tennessee yet, but the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) has big plans to change that in the next couple of decades.
Several proposals have been drafted in regards to the state's source of energy and what impact it's making on the environment and the earth as a whole. These proposals are pushing that by the year 2022, solar power in Tennessee will be working with a developed 200 megawatts of energy, which will also cut the use of burning coal and cutting back on the carbon footprint. The ultimate goal is to have a long-lasting, renewable, and natural source of energy be used and coal-burning becoming obsolete as it decreases significantly in the next couple of decades.
