With prolonged periods of sub-freezing temperatures this winter, Kentucky Utilities Company will be doubling their annual support, matching $2 for every $1 donated by residential customers, to the utilities’ third-party heating assistance programs.
This increased assistance will retroactively take effect starting February 1st and will continue through April 30th.
Coupled with this area assistance, the utilities also filed in January a request with the Kentucky Public Service Commission to return nearly $180 million in tax savings to customers this spring.
Over the last ten years, customer donations and the utilities’ matching funds have raised nearly $4 million, helping thousands of families.
LG&E and KU encourage customers to contact the utilities right away if they find themselves faced with a bill they don’t think they’ll be able to manage.
LG&E and KU can help customers identify available programs that can help them better manage their bills, as well as other area assistance programs and options available in the community.
KU customers should call 1-800-981-0600.
