The Tennessee Valley Authority will host a public meeting and webinar from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the TVA Chattanooga Office Complex to hear public comments about the newly released draft of its 2015 Integrated Resource Plan.

The power plan, which is intended to guide TVA's decisions for the next 20 years, is scheduled to be adopted by the TVA board in August after input from public stakeholder groups and a series of seven public hearings. The integrated resource plan and its associated Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement is a study of how TVA might meet future energy and capacity needs in a variety of future conditions.

Additional meetings will be held April 6 in Knoxville; April 9 in Huntsville, Ala.; April 14 in Tupelo, Miss.; April 15 in Memphis; April 21 in Nashville, and April 22 in Bowling Green, Ky. A webinar will be offered during the Knoxville meeting as well.
