Blue Grass Energy is pleased to announce that its wholesale power provider, East Kentucky Power Cooperative, today filed a request with the Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) to construct an 8.5-megawatt solar project in Clark County, Ky.
If approved, the cooperative solar installation will be located next to EKPC’s headquarters facilities, adjacent to Interstate 64 and U.S. 60, about two miles east of Fayette County. With more than 32,000 photovoltaic panels covering 60 acres of land, the installation would be one of Kentucky’s largest solar farms.
Tomorrow, July 12th, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m., improvements will be made to the transmission line that provides power to the areas listed below. We are doing this to ensure you have safe, reliable energy.
Why do we have planned outages?
Occasionally, the equipment we use to bring power to your home needs to be replaced, repaired or improved. When this happens, as a way to keep our crews and you safe, we plan an interruption to electric service.
To help you through the interruption, we recommend the following:
Replace air filters regularly for efficient heating and cooling
Clogged air filters could add $82 to your electric bill every year. Checking, changing, or cleaning your filter once a month saves money and extends the life of your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
By turning on the fan, you can turn up the savings!
If you are like most Americans, you have at least one ceiling fan in your home. Ceiling fans help our indoor life feel more comfortable. They are a decorative addition to our homes and, if used properly, can help lower energy costs.
