Innovation-Anchored Offerings

With an array of communications and energy providers in the Chattanooga area, residents can easily access a developed network of TV, internet, water, telephone, gas, and electric offerings tailored to their needs. At the forefront of companies dedicated to maintaining these services are Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) – the largest government-owned power provider in the nation, Electric Power Board (EPB), and Tennessee American Water.

Serving 10 million people across seven states, the Tennessee Valley Authority stays focused on its three Es – energy, environment, and economic development. In early 2020, TVA got more power from renewable sources than from coal for the first time in more than six decades. This federally-owned utility powerhouse has ranked among the top 20 utility companies nationwide, and its customers consistently see electric rates that are lower than the large majority of the country. In addition to partnering with local governments and power companies, TVA is responsible for navigation, land management, and flood control for the Tennessee River system.

Complementing TVA is Electric Power Board, which continues to garner national attention. After becoming the first provider to launch a community-wide fiber-optic network capable of delivering up to 1-gig internet speeds in 2010, EPB ramped up its offerings in 2015 when it launched a 10-gigabit service. J.D. Power has ranked EPB the best mid-sized electric utility in the South a total of four times, and in 2020, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance even ranked Chattanooga as a Digital Inclusion Trailblazer due to its widespread broadband services and high-speed internet access. In addition to internet services, EPB provides electric power, television, and telephone services, and the utility has also built one of the world’s most advanced smart grids: an interactive, self-healing system that reroutes power to prevent outages. To help support these services, EPB has its eye on a $16 million expansion that would consist of a brand-new operations center. 

Also keeping residents’ homes and businesses up and running is Tennessee American Water, a local, award-winning company serving roughly 360,000 people throughout the state of Tennessee. This company conducts frequent water safety tests to measure potential contaminants and uphold its commitment to delivering clean and affordable water.

Rounding out Chattanooga’s utility offerings are phone service carriers such as Comcast, AT&T, Cricket, T-Mobile, and Verizon, and gas providers such as Chattanooga Gas, Holston Gases, AmeriGas (propane), and Ferrellgas (propane).

Did you know?

The Tennessee Valley Authority is good for more than keeping pristine waterways and providing power. In May of 2019, a TVA drone documented a rare cluster of Common Harebell plants on a Tennessee River bluff, which spurred a year-long project with local botanists. The species documented isn’t common for roughly 400 miles north of the TVA site, and the event marks the first time the species has been documented in Tennessee.
