About TVA Economic Development

TVA Economic Development Powers Prosperity within a Seven-State Region

Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Economic Development powers prosperity by continually generating opportunities and creating jobs for the people of the seven-state TVA region — throughout Tennessee and extending across Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia and Kentucky.

Since 2006, Site Selection Magazine has named TVA a top utility in economic development annually. We believe our success stems from our strong regional, state, and community partnerships, our commitment to serving the ten million residents that call the Valley home, and our continued engagement with businesses and industries in an effort to help them achieve sustainable growth.

Let our dedicated team of Target Market Specialists and Regional Consultants help you with site selection services and incentives, as well as research and technical assistance. We maintain a robust library of data and look forward to helping you find your next business location in the Southeast.
