Your Voice Heard

We are dedicated to maintaining community control and protecting the voice of the public. Our Board is made up of representatives from each of our members who bring the concerns and desires of their communities to our table.

Reliable Service

Keeping the lights on is the number one priority for electric utilities, and the challenge is greater than ever with threats ranging from weather to cyber attacks. We ensure that public power is within reach and effectively provided for the benefit of our members.

SUSTAINABLE SOURCES OF POWER

KYMEA

In September of 2015, after 18 months of study and discussion, ten municipal electric utilities entered into an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement creating the Kentucky Municipal Energy Agency (KYMEA), a joint public agency. KYMEA was formed to facilitate effective collaboration among its members to do all things necessary or convenient to serve the current and future electric power and energy requirements of the Members and to provide assistance to the Members related to their electric power and energy utility systems.

The objective of KYMEA is to provide cost-effective resources and services for the benefit of its members to enable them to achieve objectives they have set for themselves more efficiently and at lower costs than they could achieve individually.
