Helping Our Neighbors

Our communities were hit hard from this weekend’s storms. Some were devastated.

Blue Grass Energy appreciated the assistance we received from other co-ops and contractors, and we return the favor when possible. Helping our neighbors is part of our commitment to our communities.

Trucks rolled out this morning as we sent crews along with equipment to help Kentucky Utilities restore power in Versailles. 

Power Restoration is Complete

As of 3:35 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, Blue Grass Energy completed restoration of service to all members who lost power due to storms and high winds that came through Friday. The high winds, rain, and lightning caused broken limbs, poles, downed power lines and trees resulting in over 10,700 members to be without power. The hardest hit part of the service area was Anderson, Franklin, and Woodford Counties.

Outage Status (7/22/18 - 11:20 a.m.)

Only 141 members remain without electricity, Anderson, Franklin, Mercer and Woodford Counties are affected.

If you are still without power and have not reported it today, please call our outage number 888-655-4243 and report it. Just by calling, our system will automatically report your outage.

All power should be restored today.

Thank you for your patience during this outage.

Outage Status (7/22/2018 - 9:00 a.m.

809 members remain without electricity, most, but not all are in Anderson, Franklin, and Woodford Counties. We have encountered difficult conditions with many spans of wire down, broken poles and problems getting equipment off road due to wet conditions.

Outage Status (7/21/18—9:30pm)

We now have 1126 members without electricity.  Extra crews arrived from different areas of the state today to assist with our restoration efforts.  We have encountered difficult conditions with many spans of wire down, broken poles and problems getting equipment off road due to wet conditions.&n

Outage Status Update as of 6:45 p.m.

We now have 1,904 members without electricity. Additional crews from other co-ops arrived this afternoon. We plan to work throughout the night again. Our expectation is to have all members’ power restored by 9 p.m. Sunday. This could fluctuate with any additional storms or damage. Our real-time outage map shows estimated restoration times and is a valuable resource.

Stay away from downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

Outage Status Update as of 12:50 p.m.

We now have 2,607 members without electricity, down from 4,643 at 8:20 a.m. The outage map is constantly being updated. Additional crews arrived this morning and several are expected this afternoon. 

Stay away from downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

How Power is Restored

We are working to restore power as quickly as we can, but there is a process and the main lines have to be restored first. Think of it as our country’s road system. Interstate 75 has to be cleared for traffic before Nicholasville Rd. Nicholasville Rd. has to be cleared before you start on James Lane.

Stay away for downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

 

Outage Status Update as of 8:20 a.m.

We now have 4,643 members without electricity. Last night, we made progress, but conditions made is difficult. 

Additional crews are assisting and we expect more today. 

We hope to make good progress getting all members back on today except for those in the hardest hit areas of Franklin, Anderson, Woodford, and Mercer Counties—which are expected to be sometime Sunday.

Our outage map is currently being updated with estimated restoration times. 

Outage Status Update as of 10 p.m.

We now have 5,840 members without electricity, down from 10,796 at our 6 p.m. peak. 

Our crews are working as swiftly and safely as possible to restore your power. We will remain working throughout the night.
