KFTC has been working to renew Kentucky's rural electric cooperatives, and the co-ops have taken steps in the right direction. But, right now, today, we can move this work forward in a big way. 

We are sending letter to the 17 rural electric co-ops asking that they:

  • Set ambitious goals for themselves, support the Clean Energy Collaborative, and get behind the Clean Energy Opportunity Act.
  • Choose clean renewables over risky fossil fuels as they consider how they will retire their oldest coal-burning plants.
  • Submit public comments in support of a federal program that will make low-interest loans available for energy efficiency in the co-ops.

On September 6 at 7 p.m. eastern, KFTC is hosting an armchair seminar to inform KFTC members and co-op members about our Renew East Kentucky campaign and the information we're sharing with the co-ops in our letter.

We are encouraging KFTC members who are interested in just learning more, or possibly meeting with your co-ops, to hop on this informative presentation. We'll review our work in the co-ops, address the actions we call for in our letter (listed above), and help folks learn how to talk with these issues with your friends, neighbors, and co-op board and staff.

We'll talk over a conference call line and share a visual presentation on the internet that you can follow along with at home.


If you have any questions, call Sara at 606-276-9933.
