One Unit of the Raccoon Mountain Pumped Storage facility in Hamilton County should be repaired in the next few months.
That's the word from T-V-A president Bill Johnson.
He led a board meeting in Chattanooga Thursday.
Johnson summarized work on Watt's Barr Unit 2, the Bellefonte site, and the ash clean-up in Kingston in his report to the board.
He said Watt's Bar is on schedule, and preliminary work is underway to bring the Bellefonte nuclear plant on-line in the next few years.
And the Raccoon Mountain unit is getting 80-million dollars worth of new turbines.

"As we are replacing the pieces that broke, we're also doing some other upgrades to things like transformers, cables, just to make sure that asset lasts for as long as we can make it last. That's a good asset..and I think we will have re-furbished units back in service sometime in the middle of this year."
T-V-A has also already phased out two coal-fired units at power plants and will close 16 other units in the next few months.
