The Tennessee Valley Authority said it plans to stop operating coal power plants that have a generating capacity higher than 3,000 megawatts. The utility's announcement is seen as a boost to Clean Line Energy Partner's $2 billion Plains and Eastern Clean Line transmission project, which would link with TVA's network in Tennessee. "This will support our focus on cleaner energy and bring additional, necessary balance into our portfolio for managing our current and projected load profile," said Bill Johnson, president and CEO of TVA.
