Discover the power of membership and all the ways you can benefit from being a member.
As a member of a cooperative, you are also an owner. You have a voice in the operation of Blue Grass Energy through the elected representatives to the cooperative board of directors.
You pay what we pay:
As a not-for-profit, you pay what it cost Blue Grass Energy to get the power to you. The rates and service fees set by Blue Grass Energy are cost-based, providing you the lowest prices to deliver service. Should we have surplus revenues, they are returned to you as Capital Credits. The money doesn’t go to a distant stockholder.
Because you receive power from us, you are not only a member but an owner of a not-for-profit business. As an owner, you will also share in the success of the cooperative through dividends, or as we refer to them—capital credits. You may receive capital credits based on the business that you’ve done (electric energy purchased) with the cooperative. Payment for capital credits vary.
Co-op Connections Card:
A unique value of being a Blue Grass Energy member is the Co-op Connections Card program. As a free service to members, this card gives access to countless discounts with national and local retailers as well as savings on prescriptions, vision, dental and chiropractic services. Blue Grass Energy members have saved over $150,000 in prescription savings alone. It’s easy to save the cost of the one-time membership fee by using this card.
One of the greatest assets that you have available as a member of Blue Grass Energy is the accessibility to local professionals. Personal service, from someone you can trust—is a rarity in many cases. We are here to serve you, our owners.
