Reducing our footprint

Reducing air emissions

While LG&E and KU’s plants continued to reduce emissions over the years, aggressive plans put in place in 2011 are proving to further cut air emissions.

More about our projects

Energy Efficiency programs

We support our customers' efforts to manage their own energy use by offering a variety of demand-side management programs and finding ways to make direct and indirect reductions in our own operations.


New technology and emission controls

In addition to the existing emission controls already operating across our power plants, we installed extensive emissions control upgrades to further reduce sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions, as well as state-of-the-art technology to control mercury and fine particulate matter.
