Honor Flight 2018

Each day, more memories like the sights and sounds, of World War II disappear with the passing of those who served. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs statistics, 362 WW II veterans die each day.

Of the 16 million Americans who served in the war, only about 500,000 are living. Around 6,400 of those veterans, most in their late 80s and 90s, call Kentucky home.

Plugging in to electric vehicles

There was a time when most of us regarded the idea of driving an electric car to be about as likely as traveling in George Jetson’s flying saucer. But no more. The era of the electric vehicle (EV) has arrived. 

Dropping prices, improved technology and longer driving ranges are just a few of the reasons Blue Grass Energy members are taking a closer look at EVs. In addition to the environmental benefits most know about, here are some important points to ponder if you’re considering an EV: 

Know whats below…call 811 before you dig!

Planning a home improvement job? Working on landscaping, or maybe installing a fence. Be sure to call 811 before you dig.

Blue Grass Energy has partnered with the 811 service, and any co-op member who needs to locate underground service should call 811, which is the national “Call before U Dig” call center.

The center provides information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for excavators, contractors, utilities, and the general public, and 811 is a toll-free number.

Helping Our Neighbors

Our communities were hit hard from this weekend’s storms. Some were devastated.

Blue Grass Energy appreciated the assistance we received from other co-ops and contractors, and we return the favor when possible. Helping our neighbors is part of our commitment to our communities.

Trucks rolled out this morning as we sent crews along with equipment to help Kentucky Utilities restore power in Versailles. 

Power Restoration is Complete

As of 3:35 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, Blue Grass Energy completed restoration of service to all members who lost power due to storms and high winds that came through Friday. The high winds, rain, and lightning caused broken limbs, poles, downed power lines and trees resulting in over 10,700 members to be without power. The hardest hit part of the service area was Anderson, Franklin, and Woodford Counties.

Outage Status (7/22/18 - 11:20 a.m.)

Only 141 members remain without electricity, Anderson, Franklin, Mercer and Woodford Counties are affected.

If you are still without power and have not reported it today, please call our outage number 888-655-4243 and report it. Just by calling, our system will automatically report your outage.

All power should be restored today.

Thank you for your patience during this outage.

Outage Status (7/22/2018 - 9:00 a.m.

809 members remain without electricity, most, but not all are in Anderson, Franklin, and Woodford Counties. We have encountered difficult conditions with many spans of wire down, broken poles and problems getting equipment off road due to wet conditions.

Outage Status (7/21/18—9:30pm)

We now have 1126 members without electricity.  Extra crews arrived from different areas of the state today to assist with our restoration efforts.  We have encountered difficult conditions with many spans of wire down, broken poles and problems getting equipment off road due to wet conditions.&n

Outage Status Update as of 6:45 p.m.

We now have 1,904 members without electricity. Additional crews from other co-ops arrived this afternoon. We plan to work throughout the night again. Our expectation is to have all members’ power restored by 9 p.m. Sunday. This could fluctuate with any additional storms or damage. Our real-time outage map shows estimated restoration times and is a valuable resource.

Stay away from downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

Outage Status Update as of 12:50 p.m.

We now have 2,607 members without electricity, down from 4,643 at 8:20 a.m. The outage map is constantly being updated. Additional crews arrived this morning and several are expected this afternoon. 

Stay away from downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.
