BGEnergy conducts 2nd virtual Annual Meeting
On Thursday, June 3, Blue Grass Energy hosted its second virtual Annual Meeting.
From 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. that day, registration was held at our four local offices. There were over 600 registered members. At 3:30 p.m., the business meeting was livestreamed.
Board Chair Dennis Moneyhon opened by saying, “We are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But safety for our members and employees dictated another virtual annual meeting this year. While we miss personally interacting with each of you, we know it was the right thing to do.”
Moneyhon went on to say, “While the past year had many changes for both employees and members, our commitment to serving each of you did not. We continued to focus on safety, service reliability and controlling our costs. Financially, the good news is we continue to remain competitive—not only in our area but nationally as well. In other good news, we just returned about $2.1 million in capital credits to you, our members. In just the last five years, we have returned nearly $10 million to our communities through Capital Credits.”
Moneyhon’s speech was followed by the installation of director Gary Keller, District 4, then comments were heard from President/CEO Mike Williams. “Because of the lessons learned this past year, I can say without a doubt, we are better positioned to serve our members into the future, Williams stated.” He went on to share that 2020 resulted in Blue Grass Energy’s highest member satisfaction score ever achieved and one of the highest reliability numbers in our 84 years. Following his address, the virtual meeting was adjourned.
