NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Valley Authority is gathering public input to help officials determine the type and mix of energy sources it will need for future power production.

TVA Vice President Joe Hoagland told The Tennessean that the agency is taking "a very long, strategic look at the assets TVA needs to provide low-cost electricity" to people across the region.

The direction taken will affect how much TVA customers pay for electricity.

TVA is the nation's largest public utility, supplying power to about 9 million people in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Along with meetings in Knoxville and Memphis, TVA is encouraging the public to participate through online webinars that can be accessed at the link below.
