TVPPA VP of Pricing & Contracts Jim Sheffield

The next TVPPA Hot Topics webinar will take place on December 14 at 10 a.m. ET/9 a.m. CT. Research & Development (R&D) Committee chair Tom Suggs, COO of Middle Tennessee Electric and staff liaison Jim Sheffield will provide an overview of current and future R&D projects being taken on either in collaboration with TVA or independently over the next several months.

“We believe there are many exciting possibilities in the area of distribution system R&D. By engaging with our members on R&D projects to support advances in electric distribution systems, we have an opportunity to support you in preparing for your future needs. In this webinar, we will give you a chance to learn about upcoming projects and find out how you can participate. Plus, we will outline the benefits of participating in a project and answer any questions you have about R&D,” said Sheffield.
“These hot topics virtual seminars are a fantastic way for TVPPA members to get relevant and timely cutting edge information on the topics of today – not yesterday. October’s inaugural episode on fiber grants and funding was led by one of the country’s leading experts in the field and it was perfectly timed so our members can see what funding is available to help them meet their broadband goals right now. We have 10 million ratepayers in the Valley and if you’re missing out on the information we’re offering here, you’re missing a wealth of information that can support your business,” said TVPPA’s Brad Rains, vice president of engineering & distribution services.
Webinar registrants will have the opportunity to access a recording of the event for later viewing. To learn more about the next webinar or to register, email our Member Services Manager Kari Crouse.
