Energy and Efficiency Opportunities in Frankfort

Frankfort's-Energy-Future--Report-FINAL--8-8-16-1A report released by EnvisionFranklinCounty explores the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy to the Frankfort Plant Board (FPB), their customers, and the local community. These benefits include protecting customers from rising electricity rates and helping them to reduce their bills; reducing the risks from being heavily dependent on coal power; lowering the FPB’s demand charges and extending the life of utility infrastructure; and generating local investment and economic development.

The Kentucky Conservation Foundation  helped Envision members to fund a follow-up study by Synapse Energy Economics to learn more about the impacts of current decisions for power purchasing. You may find the details of that NEW research on the Foundation’s website HERE.
