TVA Offers Incentives for Virus-Killing UV Technology
Tennessee Valley Authority is offering incentives to schools and businesses that install virus-killing UV lights in HVAC systems. TVA says UV-C is a short wavelength ultraviolet light used around the world to disinfect the air in hospitals and laboratories.
Germicidal lights, called Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) can be installed into the ductwork of many existing commercial HVAC systems. THE UVGI systems help kill airborne pathogens as air flows through a ducted HVAC system.
Customers can receive a $30 per ton incentive from TVA toward the adoption of approved UV technologies that directly combat coronavirus.
