The Chattanooga Climate Action Team will host an event Thursday at the UTC campus as part of National Campus Sustainability Week. This event will launch the Tennessee Healthy Energy Campaign encouraging the TVA to set a 1 percent annual energy efficiency target.
As a grass-roots effort, the Tennessee Healthy Energy Campaign will urge local distributor EPB to support this goal. With an annual efficiency standard, TVA can protect the community's health by reducing its dependence on outdated coal-fired power plants while saving its customers energy and money, officials said.
The event will be from 6-7 p.m at the UTC Greenway Amphitheater, on Vine Street between WUTC Radio and the Fine Arts Building.
