60-Acre Solar Farm Offers Benefits of Renewable Power to Blue Grass Energy Members

Construction is under way on a 60-acre solar farm in Kentucky, and Blue Grass Energy’s members will have an opportunity reap the benefits for their home or business.

Blue Grass Energy and the 15 other co-ops of Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are partnering to build the not-for-profit Cooperative Solar Farm One, which will feature 32,300 solar panels when it is completed in November.

Beware of scammers

Blue Grass Energy members are once again being targeted by scammers. Members are receiving phone calls from people claiming to work for Blue Grass Energy and demanding immediate payment to avoid service disconnection.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be with Blue Grass Energy, remember the following:

Alerts & Reminders Can Save You Money

We know our members are on the go and many rely on texting to receive and send information.

To make life better for our members, we offer the option to receive alerts and reminders absolutely free of charge. We can alert members of due dates, if an account is past due, a returned check, payment confirmation and high kilowatt usage.

Why should you sign up for alerts? Just ask Denise Myers.

Blue Grass Energy sponsors students on Frankfort Youth Tour

Last week, nine high school juniors served by Blue Grass Energy joined 136 other students from across the state for the Kentucky Rural Electric Frankfort Youth Tour. The group spent the day touring the state capital and learning about government.

Blue Grass Energy sends 10 students to the nation’s capital for the Washington Youth Tour each June. Their educational journey begins in Frankfort for a look at the state’s government system.

Blue Grass Energy to offer solar power to members this fall

Blue Grass Energy members who want to help the environment and future generations by powering their home or business with renewable energy will soon have their chance. We are teaming with other Kentucky Touchstone Energy Cooperatives to build and operate a 60-acre solar farm that is expected to begin generating sun-powered electricity this fall.

Save money with an ENERGY STAR manufactured home

When Ola Miller decided to move to her family’s farm, she bought a manufactured home rather than building a house. That’s how she learned how easy it was to upgrade to a more energy efficient manufactured home through her electric co-op.

Miller is among the many Kentuckians who are taking advantage of the ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home program. Participants automatically get a better quality ENERGY STAR certified home that is much more comfortable and less expensive to heat and cool.

We want to help you manage your energy

Reducing household energy use doesn’t mean doing without. It doesn’t require walking around your house wearing extra sweaters and earmuffs in the dead of winter. It does means being smarter about how you manage the energy you do use. We want you to consider Blue Grass Energy as your trusted resource for exploring energy-saving ideas. As a not-for-profit, member-owned electric co-op, we want to help our members with energy efficiency.

All Power is Restored

As of 5:00 p.m., restoration efforts are complete and all Blue Grass Energy members should have power. Severe storms hit our area yesterday causing approximately 8,000 members to be without power; the damage was widespread over 23 counties served by Blue Grass Energy. The saturated ground caused trucks to get stuck requiring the need for dozers. Other obstacles were fallen trees, downed lines, broken crossarms, and poles. 

Outage numbers continue to drop

We continue to see the number of members without power to drop.

We are down to 7 total outages with  68 members affected. We are still anticipating total restoration for all members by 5:00 p.m. today.

Wet conditions have hampered the speed of repairs. We appreciate everyone's patience.
