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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
