Court Dismisses Coal Group's Lawsuit over TVA's Plans to Retire Ky. Coal Units

A U.S. District court dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Kentucky Coal Association and a group of landowners against TVA for allegedly failing to conduct a proper environmental analysis as part of its decision to retire two coal units at its Paradise plant in Muhlenberg County, Ky., with a natural gas-fired, combined-cycle plant. The plaintiffs filed the lawsuit in July 2014 against TVA under the National Environmental Policy Act. Asking the court to halt the federal utility's plans to retire the two units, the lawsuit asserted that TVA did not prepare an environmental impact statement, or EIS, before deciding to construct a major new power generating facility. But in its Feb. 3 decision, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky agreed with TVA that the utility does not have to prepare an EIS for the construction of a major generating facility if it determines that the plant will have no major environmental impacts. But the court concluded that TVA performed an adequate analysis of the costs related to replacing Paradise units 1 and 2 with gas generation.

Tennessee Valley Authority Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter of 2015

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) reported earnings results for the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net income of $81 million, a $148 million increase from the first quarter of last fiscal year. Total sales declined 1.6% during the three-month period. TVA generated $29 million more operating revenue on lower sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 primarily due to a $28 million increase in base revenue. This is predominantly attributable to a non-fuel base rate increase approved by the TVA board in August 2014. TVA reported $198 million more investing cash outflows for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 compared to the same period last year, primarily due to capacity expansion spending for Watts Bar Nuclear Unit 2 and two natural gas-fired generation facilities at the utility's Paradise and Allen fossil sites. Total operating revenues for the quarter reached $2.411 billion compared with $2.382 billion for the first quarter of 2014.
