EKPC Rate Case

Farmers RECC Kentucky Public Service Commission Case File

On September 30, 2021, the Kentucky Public Service Commission issued an Order in the rate case proceeding of East Kentucky Power Cooperative Inc. (EKPC).

EKPC generates and transmits power to its 16 owner-member distribution cooperatives, including Farmers RECC. The Kentucky PSC authorized a revenue increase of $36.35 million. 

The rate increase is from EKPC, not Farmers RECC, and any additional revenue from this rate increase will go to EKPC, not Farmers RECC. 

For residential customers of Farmers RECC, the average monthly bill will increase by $3.78.

Please see the link below for more information.
