Kentucky Utilities Company


June 2007 - The Kentucky Public Service Commission approved a green energy option for customers of Louisville Gas and Electric Company (LG&E) and Kentucky Utilities Company (KU), both wholly owned subsidiaries of E.ON U.S. Under the new Green Energy program, Kentucky-based customers can purchase renewable energy in 300-kWh increments each month for $5, or a rate premium of 1.67¢/kWh; the average Kentucky household consumes approximately 900 kWh each month. The program will be supplied from Green-e certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) sourced from renewable energy projects in Kentucky and surrounding states. The company may also develop additional renewable energy sources in the future. The two utilities serve a combined total of 870,000 electric customers in the state.
