Energy developer Enbridge is hosting a series of open houses this month in Tennessee to discuss plans to build a 125-mile methane gas pipeline between Trousdale and Rowen County.
The Tennessee Valley Authority is considering turning to gas as it moves to shut down coal-fired power plants. Environmental groups have opposed the plan, urging TVA to look more closely at renewable energy options and energy efficiency. In addition to weather damage, they argue that gas pipelines can be dangerous and that gas prices are extremely volatile.
TVA officials argue that gas provides reliability and flexibility as a fuel that can be ordered at any time of the day.
