The Right Tree in the Right Place

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.

Thunderstorm safety tips from the American Red Cross

Even though we have snow on the ground, it is technically the second day of spring. That means thunderstorms will likely be headed our way in a few weeks.

When thunderstorms are rolling your way, stay safe with these helpful tips from the American Red Cross:

Power Restoration Is Complete

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. The 10” snowfall from this storm was very wet and heavy which caused broken limbs, power lines, and poles, causing over 8,331 members to be without power.  The southern part of the service area was most affected including Anderson, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, and Woodford Counties. 

1:00 p.m. Outage Update

As of 1:00 p.m. we have 27 outages causing 256 members to be without power. The locations are as follows:

Berea School Dist. - 1
