"Over its 80-year existence, the TVA has had an excellent track record in almost every area of its operation, and its success has delivered substantial benefits throughout the Tennessee Valley," Dr. Joel Yudken, an economist and principal of High Road Strategies LLC, concluded in a 44-page study of TVA's finances. "The TVA is addressing its serious financial problems and its new leadership is preserving its capabilities as a system that provides wide-ranging benefits to the region and people it serves."
Yudken said under TVA's current CEO, Bill Johnson, the federal utility is reducing its debt and should remain well below the $30 billion borrowing cap set for TVA by Congress.
But Yudken said privatizing the TVA, which accounts for about 3 percent of U.S. electricity capacity and serves over 9 million people, would increase electricity rates by requiring any new owner to pay to buy TVA, plus pay the higher private borrowing rates required by shareholders and bondholders in the private market.
"Instead of a single authority with responsibility for planning, implementing, and governing its various functions, privatization would lead to many competing entities that may or may not coordinate effectively in carrying out their missions," Yudken said.

"Over its 80-year existence, the TVA has had an excellent track record in almost every area of its operation, and its success has delivered substantial benefits throughout the Tennessee Valley," said Joel S. Yudken, principal of High Road Strategies LLC.
"It's difficult to see how selling off part or all of the TVA would provide its stakeholders with any greater benefits than the system already provides them in terms of reliable and affordable electricity, economic development and innovation in nonrenewable energy," Yudken concluded.
