TVA stated that the property was being redeveloped to help us advance our energy system in the future.
TVA has taken a number steps to bring the site back to ‘brownfield’ status by 2030 to make way for new development. It said that a portion of the site is already home to the gas-fired Paradise Combined Cycle Plant. This plant was opened in 2017. Paradise is also home to additional gas-fired combustion engines that TVA is building.
