EKPC generates electricity through two coal-fired plants: H.L. Spurlock Station near Maysville and John Sherman Cooper Station near Somerset. We make power using combustion turbines (CTs) — fueled by natural gas or fuel oil — at Bluegrass Station in LaGrange and at J.K. Smith Station in Trapp, near Winchester.
We’ve embraced the future by building Cooperative Solar Farm One, one of the largest solar projects in Kentucky. Located in Winchester, the 60-acre farm features 32,300 solar panels producing enough electricity for 1,000 Kentucky homes.
EKPC has six more plants generating renewable power from methane gas at landfills. We purchase hydropower from the federal Southeastern Power Administration’s through Laurel and Wolf Creek dams.
