The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is seeking offers for up to 2,000 swine renewable energy credits (RECs) that meet the North Carolina Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard.

Offers must be submitted through the TVA website by Feb. 15, 2022 and TVA is seeking RECs for Compliance Year 2021.

Swine RECs are associated with electricity generated by swine-waste fueled electric generating facilities properly registered with the state of North Carolina, TVA said.

TVA said it is investing in swine RECs “to support innovative solutions for cleaner energy to promote economic development opportunities in North Carolina.”

It noted that in fiscal year 2021, TVA’s economic development efforts supported record-breaking job creation — nearly 81,000 jobs and more than $8.8 billion in capital investment attracted to its seven-state service region.

Currently, TVA has over 8,000 megawatts of renewable energy in its portfolio.
