Public Service Commission (PSC) Weighs in on Cold Weather

Press Release from PSC on cold weather producing higher electric bills. 

PSC Press Release

Federal Tax Changes Will Not Affect Blue Grass Energy

Recently, changes were made to the federal corporate tax code.  These changes lowered federal taxes on for-profit corporations.

Blue Grass Energy is a not-for-profit cooperative and exempt from federal taxes.  (We still pay property and local taxes.).

Therefore, these tax code changes do not impact us, and there are no additional savings available to pass on to members.

Members are already benefiting from lower taxes—more than if they were served by an investor-owned utility, and they receive their power at our cost.

Cold snap triggers spike in local energy use

The unusually cold start to 2018 has resulted in higher than normal energy use by members of Blue Grass Energy and other utilities across the region.

Blue Grass Energy is encouraging members to be aware of their energy use and take steps to help manage electric bills, which are also expected to be higher than usual as a result of increased usage.

Weather, especially cold weather, affects residential energy bills more than any other factor. Heating claims about a 42 percent share of overall energy use in U.S. homes. 

Five tips for space heater safety

As temperatures drop this winter, many will look for supplemental heating sources for their homes. Space heaters can be an alternative for those who want to warm one area of their home without turning up the thermostat on the central heating system. However, space heaters are also responsible for 32 percent of house fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association. If you are planning to use a space heater in your home this winter, review these tips to keep you, your family and your property safe.
