We seek innovative solutions and opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle waste materials.
A ‘Ewe’nique Partnership
LG&E and KU’s E.W. Brown Generating Station is home to four different types of energy generating resources, including a nearly 100-year-old hydroelectric facility and the first, and largest, existing universal solar facility in the commonwealth. Mowing grass that grows under and around solar arrays can be difficult to do with conventional lawn mowers, so LG&E and KU turned to an unconventional partnership: grazing sheep.
We work extensively to ensure the environment is protected in our work, especially in sensitive resource areas, and we are committed to conserving our natural habitat and native species.
