Farmers RECC Scholarship and Washington Youth Tour Students Recognized

Farmers RECC Scholarship Recipients Announced

Eight Farmers RECC Scholarships were awarded to students via random drawing at a Board of Directors meeting in Glasgow, KY. The scholarships would have been drawn during the 2020 Farmers RECC Annual Meeting, but that event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

They were in no particular order: 

Back to the Future

I’m a big fan of technology. Farmers RECC depends on it to deliver safe, reliable electricity to you at the lowest possible cost. 

Yet I still prefer the low-tech approach when it comes to calendars. I find satisfaction in turning a paper page to begin a new month. That’s especially true as I flip to January 2021, leaving behind memories associated with words like closed, cancelled and postponed. 

Where Does Your Electricity Come From?

Farmers RECC is one of 16 cooperatives that owns and governs the company that generates and transmits sustainable, affordable and reliable power to us. Our co-op receives energy from East Kentucky Power Cooperative and then distributes it to you and 18,000 members in our eight Kentucky counties.

EKPC generates electricity from two coal-fueled plants: Spurlock Station located in Maysville and Cooper Station near Somerset.

Farmers RECC Lights Up Christmas

Each year, Farmers RECC sponsors the “Lighting Up Christmas” program for a school in their service territory. The program, coordinated by the Events Team at Farmers RECC, gathers unwrapped toys and monetary donations for a school in their service territory to use for students in need.

The school chosen to receive donations in the 2020 Christmas season was Eastern Elementary in Barren County.

Eight out of 10 fire-related deaths occur at home—the place that embodies comfort and security. That’s why it’s important to take steps to keep everyone
safe.

Farmers RECC Lobbies Closed

In order to comply with the Kentucky Governor’s mandates related to the Coronavirus, Farmers RECC lobbies will be closed from November 23 through December 13. Please use our drive thru, download our mobile app, visit us online at www.farmersrecc.com or call us at 270-651-2191.

Farmers RECC Donates $7,000 to Local Organizations Committing to End Hunger

Farmers RECC recently donated $7,000 to area organizations who are committed to ending hunger in our area.  

The BackPack Program, organized by Feeding America, helps children get nutritious, easy-to-prepare food so they can get enough to eat on the weekends, when they are not in school. Bags of food are assembled at area food banks and then distributed to children through the school’s Youth Resource Office. 

Farmers RECC donated $2,000 each to Barren, Hart and Metcalfe counties. 

We'll Work With You

To help our members during the COVID-19 pandemic, Farmers RECC temporarily suspended service disconnections due to nonpayment of bills. As of October 20, 2020, Farmers RECC will resume normal payment terms and conditions for accounts with a past due balance.
