Blue Grass Energy has successful Annual Meeting

On Thursday, June 6, Blue Grass Energy welcomed a crowd of over 600 members and their families to the cooperative’s annual meeting, held at the Keeneland Entertainment Barn in Lexington, Kentucky.

The crowd of nearly 1,500 was treated to a meeting geared towards families—with several children’s activities, which varied from bounce houses to video games.

Entertainment included Bingo for everyone—with members winning over $1,000 in prizes. A meal of BBQ and hot dogs with all the trimmings was provided to all in attendance prior to the business meeting.

Annual Meeting set for June 6

Blue Grass Energy invites its members to the 2019 Annual Meeting on Thursday, June 6 at the Keeneland Entertainment Center.

Registration is 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the business meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. The entrance to the Keeneland Entertainment Center is directly across from Man O’ War Boulevard and Blue Grass Airport, at 4201 Versailles Road in Lexington.

May is National Electrical Safety Month

Electricity plays many roles in our lives, from powering baby monitors, cell phones and lighting, to running HVAC systems and appliances. No wonder we get so comfortable with its instant availability that when we flip a switch, we expect most systems or devices to do the job. 

May is National Electrical Safety Month, and here at Blue Grass Energy we think it’s a great time to look around your home and check for potential safety hazards.

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

Supporting our youngest members through education is an important part of who we are. That is why we offer scholarships to graduating seniors throughout our service area.

These scholarships will be awarded in a random drawing following the business meeting portion of our Annual Meeting on June 6, 2019. The meeting will be held at the Keeneland Entertainment Center. Registration will begin at 4:30 p.m. with the business meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m.
