LG&E and KU are well recognized in Kentucky as leaders for encouraging economic vitality and quality of life. The utilities continue to have nationally competitive electricity rates and have made strategic investments in infrastructure and technology to ensure the communities served have safe, reliable energy and are poised for economic growth.

Over the past two years, the companies’ economic development efforts contributed to 268 announcements of new or expanding businesses within their service territories, which includes more than 12,562 jobs and investments of more than $4.8 billion.

In 2018, Site Selection, the international economic development magazine, once again named LG&E and KU a “Top 10 Utility” for the companies’ efforts to grow business and attract jobs to Kentucky.
