For as little as 5% of your monthly electric power bill, your business can support the use of renewable energy resources like wind, solar power and methane gas – resources that create less waste and less pollution, and are located right here in the Tennessee Valley.
Every 300 kilowatt-hours of Green Power your business purchases offers the environmental equivalent of recycling 240 pounds of aluminum cans, recycling 800 pounds of newspaper or planting an entire acre of trees in the Chattanooga area.

EPB will be happy to perform a comprehensive assessment to determine the energy efficiency of your business and provide advice to improving comfort and cost savings, while you earn money-saving rebates.
EPB encourages businesses to pursue aggressive growth strategies - and boost economic development within our service area – by partnering with TVA to offer an Investment Credit Program for customers whose operations utilize electric power as a major component.
Customers who may be eligible:
Customers receive a monthly power bill credit for 5 years. To find out more, complete the Business Service Request Form or call us at 423-648-1249.
EPB encourages growth in the manufacturing sector by offering significant power cost savings to qualifying manufacturers, which in turn helps retain jobs in our service area.
The credit is available under Part 3 of the GSA schedule to customers that meet contract demand greater than 1,000 kW but not more than 5,000 kW, and meet the SIC code requirement for Manufacturing: (20 through 39)
In any month when the metered demand for firm power exceeds 1,000 kW, a credit is applied to each kW of metered demand used in determining the firm billing demand and each kWh of firm energy.
To find out more, complete the Business Service Request Form or call us at 423-648-1249.
By installing renewable energy generation equipment such as wind and solar, customers may qualify for some Federal tax credits for renewable energy.
EPB can provide technical support for any such installation, because all equipment must be in compliance with national standards and all applicable codes and be certified by a licensed electrician.
TVA will then purchase 100% of the green power output, paying the current electric rate for all output. Payment is made in the form of a credit issued by EPB on the monthly power bill for the home or business where the generation system is located – and guaranteed for ten years from the date of the contract.
The Economic Development Loan Fund from TVA is a multimillion-dollar revolving loan program designed to stimulate capital investment and job creation in our region. These loans are made available to companies for fixed asset purposes such as plant expansion and equipment purchase. Depending on job creation and capital investment, loans are made for up to $2 million.
