Laura Mohn, engineering group leader at Trimble County Station – LG&E and KU

Laura Mohn started at LG&E and KU 15 years ago as a co-op. Today she leads a group of 10 engineers and three co-ops. Her team monitors day-to-day operations of the plant, runs projects and continually looks at how they can improve performance. Her team has spent time recently working to install a baghouse at the plant as part of the company’s environmental requirements.

“Another big project is the installation of a natural gas pipeline so we can convert our start-up and stabilization fuel to natural gas, which is a great savings for our customers,” Mohn said.

Her work has her always facing new challenges, and looking for creative solutions.

“We don’t deal with customers on a day-to-day basis. But the things we do to make our units run better is a direct cost savings to our customers.”
