A reliable energy future takes the right mix

February 20, 2023

We’ve announced plans to build a diverse mix of power generation and retire nearly a third of the capacity of our aging generation fleet by 2028. Our plan – we’re seeking approval for it from the Kentucky Public Service Commission by Oct. 1, 2023 – is the least-cost option to continue to serve our customers’ energy needs responsibly, reliably and affordably. It includes: 

  • Building two 621-megawatt natural gas combined-cycle units.
  • Adding nearly 1,000 megawatts of solar generation and 125 megawatts of battery storage.

In keeping with our long-term goal of net zero by 2050, our plans allow us to decrease carbon emissions in a measured fashion as research and development advances in the coming years. Visit lge-ku.com/future to learn more about our plan.
