Walls. Floors. Ceilings. Attic. These are some of the prime areas of a home that need insulation in order for you to maximize energy efficiency. According to the Department of Energy (DOE), adding insulation to your home is a sound investment that is likely to pay for itself in reduced utility bills. In fact, DOE estimates that you can reduce your heating and cooling needs up to 30 percent by properly insulating and weatherizing your home.
Understanding your home’s actual energy use can be confusing. That’s why we offer an online tool called BillingInsights to make it easier to understand. Plus, when you complete your home profile, we’ll send a free Philips Slimstyle LED bulb to you!
This new tool allows you to view energy use and costs by using your billing history, actual weather data and some information you provide about your home. It also shows you how you can lower your energy costs and become more energy efficient.

Blue Grass Energy members are once again being targeted by scammers. Members are receiving phone calls from people claiming to work for Blue Grass Energy and demanding immediate payment to avoid service disconnection.
If you receive a call from someone claiming to be with Blue Grass Energy, remember the following:
On Tuesday, February 9, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked the EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP), which attempts to regulate carbon emissions from power plants.
The CPP would fundamentally change how electricity is generated, distributed and consumed in the United States. It targets coal, which is the main source of Kentucky’s electricity and would force utilities to use a different fuel source.
At Blue Grass Energy, we are hoping for the best but planning for the worst due to the heavy snow in the forecast. We are ready and on-call 24/7 to respond to power outages. We have a comprehensive outage management plan in place and when outage calls start coming into our office, we deploy a systematic approach to restoring power.
When winter temperatures drop and storms hit, it can be challenging to stay safe and warm. Winter storm severity varies depending on where you live, but nearly all Americans are affected by extreme winter storms at some point. We care about your safety, and we want you to be prepared.
What do 1,500 high school students, our nation’s capital and electric cooperatives have in common? The Washington Youth Tour (WYT), of course!
