Principles - We believe the following principles should shape Kentucky’s energy policies:

  • Make improving energy efficiency Kentucky’s top energy priority.
  • Promote the development of clean, renewable energy from solar, wind, hydro and low-impact bio-mass, and increase the share of our overall energy mix that comes from these sources.
  • Create new jobs and opportunities for Kentuckians, including a just transition for coal producing communities and workers.
  • Enable all Kentucky residents and businesses to take advantage of energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.
