Demand Conservation

This program pays our residential and small business customers who allow us to cycle off enrolled air conditioners, water heaters, and pool pumps during high-energy demand periods.

This program is not accepting new enrollments currently; however, we do encourage other interested customers to check out our Bring Your Own Thermostat (BYOT) program which will be available later this spring.

The BYOT program is similar to the Demand Conservation program where participating customers help LG&E and KU during high energy demand days and it pays customers after each successful participation of an event. The BYOT program is a Wi-fi connection to your smart thermostat which allows us to adjust the temperature by a few degrees before and during the event period.
