Home Utility Gift (HUG) Certificates

  • Minimum HUG certificate purchase is $25
  • Makes a great gift for families in need, senior citizens on fixed incomes
  • Also an ideal gift for your favorite nonprofit organization

Looking for the perfect gift idea for that hard-to-buy-for person on your gift list? Give them a Home Utility Gift (HUG) certificate. A HUG credits the utility account of any LG&E, KU or ODP customer. Instead of working like traditional gift certificates, which can get lost or become obsolete if the store or restaurant goes out of business, a HUG is a credit placed directly on the recipient's account.

When you purchase a HUG, we'll automatically deduct the amount of your purchase from the recipient's next bill. And we'll mail you a gift certificate you can present to the recipient to let them know you bought them a HUG. The recipient does not need to take any action when you present them with the HUG certificate.

HUGs are especially ideal for families in need, senior citizens, newlyweds and college students who live off-campus. HUGs also make a great gift for churches, non-profits and social service organizations who struggle to manage routine operating expenses throughout the year.
