Blue Grass Energy’s Power Supplier Seeks Approval of Kentucky PSC for Solar Project

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. 

We are making improvements for you!

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:

Clearing the Air

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.
