PFP Full Color Hoz.png

Pennies for Purpose is a program that helps our neighbors and communities for pennies each month. It is funded by Blue Grass Energy members who round up their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar; and provides funding to charitable causes across our 23-county service area.

Once a member enrolls, the average yearly contribution would be about $6. For example, a $64.89 bill would round up to an even $65. 

Since the Pennies for Purpose (PFP) program started in January 2019, $10,000 has been distributed within our communities. Making life better, the cooperative way is our purpose and each of these organizations reflect that in what they do for our members.

This program is funded by our members who contribute by electing to round up their electric bills to the nearest dollar. PFP is governed by an independent, volunteer committee of Blue Grass Energy members.
