KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Friday is the deadline for public comments on the Tennessee Valley Authority's long-term energy resource strategy.

The Integrated Resource Plan is being updated to reflect changes that include the availability of lower-cost natural gas, slower electricity demand growth, a new schedule for completing Watts Bar Nuclear Unit 2 and TVA's decision to retire 26 older coal units.

The agency is also taking comments on its Supplement Environmental Impact Statement.

The two plans will address issues like the cost and reliability of power, the effects of power production on the environment and the use of renewable power and energy efficiency.

TVA is the nation's largest public utility, serving 9 million people in parts of seven southeastern states.
