TVA FOIA on Green Power Switch continues

Ms. Denise Smith
TVA FOIA Officer
Tennessee Valley Authority

Dear Ms. Smith;

Please be advised that the information requested through the TVA FOIA will be used in a commercial venture, namely, the publication of much of it in a forthcoming book about the TVA.

I would be happy to send you a copy of the chapter headings of that book and a picture of its proposed cover. At this point it is estimated the final number of pages of the book will be between 300 and 400 pages. It readily will be available on the Internet upon publication for a sales price not yet determined.

Hopefully, this will be sufficient reason to proceed with my FOIA request concerning information from the TVA OIG’s office and to waive the proposed $1,000 fee. To speed up the process, a search of only the past five fiscal years would be sufficient to my needs so long as they coincide with the CRS certifications time frame.

Also, I would appreciate a response to the remaining items on my original Green Power Switch request stretching back to last June which deal with financial data of the GPS program.

Thanks for an early response.

Ernest Norsworthy

  1. Mr. Norsworthy, I saw your reply to my report on the memorial service, and I’d like to know more about your group. We are suing TVA in Federal Court over the tree removal issue, and 11 families have signed on so far here, in Chattanooga, and Nashville. We expect the suit to be heard next July, and until then (I assume we will lose) we have a possible nucleus of activity. It would be good to hear from you. My email address is Vance Sherwood
    My wife’s address is
