The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy submitted comments to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on its environmental review of a pipeline to feed the Tennessee Valley Authority’s proposed new gas plant at Cumberland in middle Tennessee.

In our comments, SACE highlighted two points:

  1. FERC should rely less on TVA’s EIS because it’s flawed, and
  2. FERC should find the project “significantly” contributes to climate change.
