Best Answer

There were two major agencies for electricity during the New Deal. The Rural Electrification Administration (REA) brought electricity to isolated farm regions that were of no interest to private utility companies because of the cost and not much profit to the company. The largest government utility provider was the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). It was created to harness the rivers in the Tennessee Valley area and provide electricity to the people living in those areas, some of the poorest in the nation. A system of dams would be created on the rivers to control the floods and to generate electricity. The low cost electricity brought the Valley into the 20th Century and provided the means for other companies to open in that area, thus providing employment to the people.
