"EHFA Electricity for All TVA" Begun in 1933, the Tennessee Valley Authority
(TVA) built dams for flood control, planned reforestation, and brought
hydroelectric power to the people of the Tennessee River Valley. The logo
shown here was used by the Electric Home Farm Administration (EHFA), a
part of the TVA that worked with manufacturers to provide low-cost, well-made
appliances for families in rural communities within the Authority's jurisdiction.
The emblem depicts humanity harnessing the power of electricity, providing
"Electricity for All." It was to be displayed in stores and on appliances
to alert consumers that items sold on the premises met EHFA standards.
