In a Senate speech last year, the Republican called the wind-power project "expensive and unreliable" and urged the Tennessee Valley Authority not to commit to purchasing Clean Line's power. Last month, Clean Line ended its interconnection agreement with the nation's largest public power utility. The TVA had studied the possibility of purchasing the wind-generated power but ultimately declined to do so. Complete story »
