As colder temperatures approach, increases in electric usage can't be far behind. However, by signing up for Levelized Billing, you can prevent drastic changes in the amount of your bill.
A levelized bill averages the previous 12 monthly bills along with the current month's usage. Because it is a "rolling average", the need to annually settle-up balances is eliminated. Reconciliation of your account will be necessary only if you move or decide to stop participating in the program.
Donald Brady of Berea and Kenneth Simpson of Cynthiana met 66 other Kentucky veterans at Bluegrass Airport early on the morning of September 22, all participating in a one-day Honor Flight.
Honor Flight takes veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War on a one-day trip to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials erected to honor their service and sacrifices. Brady and Simpson, both Vietnam veterans and members of Blue Grass Energy, represented the co-op which helped sponsor the all-expense paid trip.
Electric lineworkers from across Kentucky converged on the Murray-Calloway County Fairgrounds Sept. 13-14 to compete in the 14th annual Kentucky Lineman’s Rodeo. More than 125 linemen from 17 Kentucky electric cooperatives competed in a variety of individual and team events to celebrate their jobs, challenge one another in friendly competition, and demonstrate their safety and skills.

Of the 16 million Americans who served in the war, only about 500,000 are living. Around 6,400 of those veterans, most in their late 80s and 90s, call Kentucky home.
There was a time when most of us regarded the idea of driving an electric car to be about as likely as traveling in George Jetson’s flying saucer. But no more. The era of the electric vehicle (EV) has arrived.
Dropping prices, improved technology and longer driving ranges are just a few of the reasons Blue Grass Energy members are taking a closer look at EVs. In addition to the environmental benefits most know about, here are some important points to ponder if you’re considering an EV:
