The Arbor Day Foundation encourages thoughtful practices that help preserve community trees while also benefiting electric co-op consumers.
Trees can help cool your home and neighborhood, break cold winds to lower your heating costs, and provide food for wildlife. Properly placed trees can lower line clearance costs for utility companies, reduce tree mortality, and result in healthier community forests.
As of 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14, Blue Grass Energy completed restoration of service to all members who lost power due to an early-week snowstorm.
