Having solar installed for your business

LG&E and KU* offers individual solar facilities for business and industrial customers interested in renewable generation.

We will procure, build, own and operate the individual solar facilities with minimal impact on operations and maintain the solar arrays for the life of the agreement. Each project is subject to approval by the Kentucky Public Service Commission.  We will work with our third-party business partner for our Business Solar program.

*An offering is also available for eligible Kentucky Utilities Company d/b/a Old Dominion Power Company (“ODP”)

Net Metering

Net Metering allows customers who have a private generation source to receive credits towards future power needs for any excess power generated.

Cost effective

There is minimal cost required up front for this program - typically just those costs associated with permitting and feasibility studies. You will then be charged a monthly fee by LG&E and KU for use and maintenance of the solar array. This monthly fee is based on the size of your array. Customers receive bill credits, based on the production of the array, that offset a portion of the monthly fee.

This offering is part of LG&E and KU's Green Tariff.

Maker's Mark® partnered with our company to install 560 solar panels at the rickhouses along Highway 52 in Loretto, Kentucky in 2020 and has since expanded their solar panels to include a total of 802 panels. The 310-kW solar array, producing solar power annually, supplies energy for security, lighting, barrel elevators and office space at the rick house.
