Building partnerships with federal customers.
TVA recognizes the strategic value of the federal customers in our service territory. Through the EnergyRight FESP program, we're honored to help these entities thrive and grow in the Valley.
A partner for all.
FESP is a one-stop shop delivering technical and financial solutions to federal customers in the Valley. Whether you’re considering improvements to meet immediate needs or you’re looking for a road map to lower carbon emissions for the next 10 years, TVA EnergyRight is your long-term partner.
Our goal is clear: to support local economies and promote job creation. Our federal customers contribute greatly to the economy and quality of life in the region. When they succeed, our communities thrive. Which is why FESP helps federal agencies use less energy, lower costs and keep our communities strong.
Making an impact
We’re helping federal agencies meet energy- and water-saving goals, improving aging infrastructure and lowering costs by taking advantage of new technologies and innovations in the energy space. Since 1998, FESP has performed more than 30 projects, saving the federal government more than $100M.
Administered by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Utility Energy Services Contracts (UESC) foster collaboration among federal agencies within direct and local power company served communities. Through FESP, TVA helps federal customers implement new systems and provides capital improvements to make federal facilities more resilient, reliable and environmentally friendly.
We didn’t invent UESCs*, but the way we implement them adds value. TVA project management teams are there every step of the way, making sure that promised savings are realized. We offer flexible financing options and allow federal customers to utilize energy savings to pay for capital upgrades with no capital funding.
*A UESC is a utility energy services contract between a federal agency and its serving utility for the purpose of implementing energy efficiency, water conservation and energy resiliency projects for the federal customer.
Our federal partners are important to us.
We don’t just build better facilities. We build relationships.
Redstone Arsenal: A story of success.
We understand how important it is to meet facility requirements, federal mandate and executive orders. That’s why we partner with federal customers like the U.S. Army to build future-friendly facilities. Located near Huntsville, Alabama, Redstone Arsenal (RSA) is a driving force behind the region’s rapid growth and high quality of living. Home to more than a dozen federal agencies, the base took advantage of the UESC process to make critical capital improvements including steam decentralization, lighting upgrades, new energy management controls and building envelope and HVAC upgrades.

What our federal customers are saying.
Appropriated funds are typically extremely limited for projects like these, Therefore, the implementation of new technologies and improvements would have been, at the very least, much slower, if not impossible, without the use of TVA’s FESP program.
