Sports lighting pilot program

  • Helping competitive sports facilities manage costs and energy
  • New rate option for outdoor fields used for competitive sports
  • Sign-up is first come, first served
  • Helps eligible facilities better manage costs and energy use

Late nights at the ballpark are a summer ritual for many families. But those extra innings may be an extra cost for the sports fields. LG&E and KU are exploring ways to help eligible sports facilities better manage their costs and times when their energy use is highest.

We’ve launched a new pilot program, recently approved by the Kentucky Public Service Commission, to offer a new rate option to qualified competitive sports facilities.

Customers’ interest and feedback throughout the pilot program will help us evaluate future offerings.

How it works

Much like the concept behind our time-of-day rates available to residential customers, the new pilot rate option varies based on the time of day and the season. Based on how and when your sports facility uses electricity, you may be able to save money on your power bill. 

Complete the online interest form if you’d like to be contacted about this new rate option.

Eligibility requirements

The pilot rate is available on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 20 LG&E and 20 KU electric meters located at qualifying facilities.

After completing the interest form, you will be contacted by a company representative to discuss the new rate option so we can help you determine if this new rate option complements your facility’s needs and operations. We will then complete your registration into the pilot program.
