This is the draft Environmental Assessment by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Kinder Morgan's application to re-purpose the Tennessee Gas Pipeline that runs through Kentucky from natural gas service to hazardous natural gas liquids.
This draft was shared with participants at the Empower Kentucky Summit, September 30-October 1 in Louisville. Feedback is welcome. Comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. A final plan will be released in early 2017.
This is a recording of a slide show presentation about Kentucky's changing energy landscape used during a series of public events - called A Seat At The Table - held in the spring of 2016 to gather public input about Kentucky's energy future. These events were part of KFTC's Empower Kentucky project.
This report from the Center for Social Inclusion, Grid Alternatives and Vote Solar describes model policies to ensure that low-income communities have access to the benefits of solar energy - including access to jobs, health, and affordable, reliable energy.
This report from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) describes ways states, communities and utilities can open the doors to solar and other renewable energy sources for low and moderate income homes and people living in economically distressed communities.
The Environmental Justice Leadership Forum on Climate Change produced this guidance describing ways states can and should prioritize health and equity as they develop plans to comply with the federal Clean Power Plan rule. KFTC's work is featured as a case study.
KFTC provided these comments to the US EPA in response to several complex proposals that were embedded within the final Clean Power Plan rule. We look forward to working with the EPA and the Commonwealth of Kentucky to ensure that the Clean Power Plan is implemented in ways that advance economic, racial and environmental justice.
In December 2015 KFTC provided comments to the US EPA about a proposed incentive program that is contained within the Clean Power Plan. The Clean Energy Incentive Program encourages states and utilities to invest early in renewable energy and in energy efficiency projects in low-income communities.
