Empowering Sustainability in Kentucky

Empowering our customers to do even more

Here are the many ways we’re partnering with our customers to help them meet their sustainability goals:

Solar Share Program

For less than 20 cents a day, our customers are helping grow local solar energy in Kentucky and earning energy credits on their monthly bills.

Business Solar Program

We offer customized individual solar facilities for business customers interested in renewable generation.

Green Energy Program

For as little as $5 a month, our customers are directly supporting the growth and long-term viability of regional renewable energy operators and the broader renewable energy industry.

Green Tariff

We’re growing economic development in Kentucky and helping new and existing business customers meet their sustainability goals through customized renewable energy options.  

Electric Vehicle Hosted Charging Stations

We offer business customers the opportunity to host electric vehicle charging stations for their employees and customers.

Business Rebates

We help our business customers earn cash rebates for qualified energy efficient upgrades.   

Outdoor LED Lighting Service

We offer a variety of energy-efficient LED lighting options for all customers, including local governments.

Energy Efficiency Advice

We offer simple tips to help you save energy and money.

We’re integrating sustainability into every part of our operations and through customer partnerships

As part of our environmental efforts across our generation fleet and throughout our business, we’ve committed with our parent company, PPL, to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and are on track to achieve an 80% reduction from 2010 levels by 2040 and a 70% reduction by 2035.

We’ve already helped the city of Louisville to reduce its CO2 emissions by 10% and are increasingly adding more solar to further increase our existing renewable generation, which includes two, nearly 100-year-old hydro facilities. And, we’re continuing to explore additional opportunities to add more cost-effective renewable energy sources for our customers.

Carbon capture

Capturing carbon

We’re partnering with the University of Kentucky on a megawatt-scale carbon capture pilot at our E.W. Brown Generating Station, one of the few operational sites in the United States.

We’ve pledged to electrify 10% of our transportation fleet by 2030 by replacing our end-of-lease light duty vehicles with a combination of fully electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids and outfitting our heavy-duty vehicles with plug-in idle mitigation units. We plan to have around 130 total electric vehicles, which will be a blend of light duty trucks and heavy-duty bucket trucks, which will also be much quieter while idling.

Using battery storage

We’re collaborating with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) on a large-scale energy storage project at our E.W. Brown Generating Station.

E.W Brown pollinator habitat

Growing pollinator habitats

We’re working to establish more than 100 acres of pollinator habitats rich with native plants that create an environment to attract and support pollinators such as native bees, honey bees and monarch butterflies.

Sheep at the solar field

Maintaining vegetation sustainably with solar sheep

Have ewe heard about our latest all-natural partnership? A team of woolly cool weed eaters from Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill is keeping the vegetation in check at our E.W. Brown solar facility, the largest of its kind in the state.

We’re helping protect and restore the peregrine falcon population with nesting boxes at our facilities.
