Kentucky Power

Dear Friends,

Kentucky Power is committed to providing safe and reliable electricity to customers in the 20 counties of eastern Kentucky that we serve. In addition to being a utility service provider to our customers, we know the importance of being a good corporate citizen.

In 2021, Kentucky Power contributed nearly $600,000 and the American Electric Power Foundation awarded $436,706 to community organizations. We were able to assist with food banks, housing improvements, schools, youth organizations, fire departments, arts and entertainment organizations, and organizations promoting social and racial justice.

Kentucky Power employees believe it is important to invest time and money toward making a difference in our communities. Being ranked as one of the best places to work in Kentucky, our positive workplace culture is founded on employees who are engaged in their communities. Employees spend numerous hours volunteering their time and talents to our schools, nonprofit boards and other organizations. They volunteer at fairs and festivals and are firmly committed to making a difference.

Kentucky Power also contributed over $538,000 to economic development projects within the communities in our service territory. We remain dedicated to supporting the people and programs in our communities that make our region a better place to live, work and play.

On behalf of Kentucky Power, I thank you for the opportunity to serve eastern Kentucky. I continue to pledge our dedication to our customers and the communities where we all live and work.
