As of 8:45 p.m., Blue Grass Energy has 61 outages affecting approximately 860 members. Outages are widespread, with most in Pendleton, Harrison and Anderson County. Additional crews arrived late this afternoon. Damage was widespread, and progress has been difficult. Several broken poles have been discovered as well as numerous lines down. Dozers are needed to assist trucks in order to replace broken poles. Crews will continue working throughout the night. Most members should have power restored sometime tomorrow (Thursday, March 2). Please remember to stay away from any downed lines.
Restoring power after a large weather event takes significant time. Crews are still working and will continue through the night. However progress is slow. We are having to use dozers in some areas because of the conditions.

Few people like surprises, especially the ones that arrive in the mailbox as bills. That’s why Blue Grass Energy wants you to know about BillingInsights, an innovative home energy analysis tool that can help you avoid being unpleasantly surprised by your electric bill.
With a few taps on your mobile device or clicks of a computer mouse, you can track electricity use in your home and learn exactly where your energy and dollars are going.
At Blue Grass Energy, our purpose of making life better, the cooperative way is what guides us. That’s why we offer an innovative, voluntary program that makes your electric bills more affordable. It’s called SimpleSaver.
Here’s how SimpleSaver works. One of the issues Blue Grass Energy deals with is what we call “peak demand.” That’s a period when electric demand is at its highest.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that cooking alone accounts for 4 percent of total home energy use, and this figure doesn’t include the energy costs associated with refrigeration, hot water heating, and dishwashing.
