TVA is making decisions about the future of the Allen coal-burning power plant right now. This urgent issue requires immediate action in our community. Yes, they provide us electricity, but there is a cleaner safer way than burning coal.
TVA released a draft environmental assessment outlining plans to retire the Allen coal-burning power plant in Memphis and to replace it with a natural gas-fired plant. TVA recently hosted a public open house event (July 8th) at the Amtrak Train Station Boardroom to discuss their plans with the public. The Sierra Club, the NAACP Memphis Branch, and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy were on hand to share their organizational views on the TVA’s proposed plan to convert the plant from coal to natural gas.
