News/Events

The Commitment Of An Electric Lineworker

On April 8, we celebrate National Lineworker Day. Blue Grass Energy’s lineworkers are responsible for keeping power flowing day and night, regardless of national holidays, vacations, birthdays, weddings or other important family milestones. Beyond the years of specialized training and apprenticeships, it takes internal fortitude and a purpose-oriented outlook to be a good lineworker. In fact, this service-oriented mentality is a characteristic of lineworkers.

Why We Clear Rights-of-Way

Providing our members with reliable electric service is a top priority at Blue Grass Energy. One of the main components of service reliability is having clear rights-of-way throughout our system. 

Rights-of-way for distribution lines that carry power to homes and businesses are typically a minimum of 10 feet on each side of the lines. We need this clearance to safely maneuver our large utility vehicles as we work to install, repair and maintain electrical equipment.

Game On

John Hampton makes the calls at Division I basketball games

The basketball game is on—fans are screaming, a ball is bouncing on the hardwood, sneakers are squeaking. All of the boisterous excitement reverberates through the arena. But then a whistle shrills. Everything stops. All eyes shift to one referee.

Storm Safety

Spring is around the corner and with it is the possibility of storms. We urge all members to be weather ready for what Mother Nature sends. Follow these tips to be prepared and stay safe.

Before a storm:

Consider the convenience of our Bank Draft program

Let us help take the worry out of remembering to paying your Blue Grass Energy bill. Bank Draft is not only the easiest way to pay, it’s also the most convenient and it saves you from worrying about being late with your payment. With Bank Draft, you have the security of knowing that your bill will be paid on time.

With Bank Draft, the payment for your account is drafted from your checking account on your due date each month. You will still receive your bill that shows the amount and the due/draft date.

Blue Grass Energy to award ten $1,500 scholarships at Annual Meeting

Avoid Drastic Changes In Your Bill With Levelized Billing

As cold temperatures invade Kentucky, energy usage is on the rise, making it a perfect time to consider our Levelized Billing option.

Levelized Billing allows us to average your monthly power bill based on your current month along with the previous 12 months of power use. Then we bill you for that average amount—so you pay approximately the same amount every month. There is no “settle-up” month because the amount is recalculated each month based on a rolling average.

Blue Grass Energy Named 2019 Tree Line USA by Arbor Day Foundation

The Arbor Day Foundation has named Blue Grass Energy a 2019 Tree Line USA in honor of its commitment to proper tree pruning, planting and care in the provider’s service area.

Tree Line USA, a partnership between the Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters, recognizes public and private utilities for pursuing practices that protect and enhance America's urban trees. Tree Line USA promotes the dual goals of delivering safe and reliable electricity while maintaining healthy community forests.

Pennies for Purpose

You can make a difference with Pennies for Purpose (PFP).

PFP is a way to help our neighbors and communities for just pennies each month.

PFP will provide funding to charitable causes across our 23-county service area by giving you the opportunity to round up your electric bill to the next whole dollar.

For example, a bill of $64.89 would round up to an even $65. By rounding up, your yearly contribution would be approximately $6. 

Kentucky Wounded Heroes

We are pleased to announce our 2019 charity partner -- Kentucky Wounded Heroes.
