Why Clark Energy?

Clark Energy Cooperative is a not-for-profit electric utility headquartered in Winchester, Kentucky. We provide electric service to more than 26,000 customers in 11 east central Kentucky counties. As a cooperative, we differ from investor-owned utilities in that we are owned by the members we serve and not by stockholders in another area. Clark Energy is governed by a board of nine directors that are elected from each district of the membership and are responsible for establishing our policies and procedures.

Our Region

We have three offices for Clark Energy located in Winchester, Stanton, and Frenchburg, conveniently centralized for our service territories. 

Programs and Incentives

As part of Clark Energy’s commitment to the community, we work with local officials, the local Chamber of Commerces, and industry development organizations in their effort to recruit new industry and retain existing businesses and industries. 
Clark Energy and its energy services partner, Envision, are continually working with industrial and commercial members to provide value-added services. These services include:
  • Power Factor Correction – CEC will measure the existing power and our engineers will conduct a PFC study that will help an industry make economic decisions as related to power factor correction.
  • Rate Evaluation – CEC can evaluate your company’s energy usage and demand requirements and determine the best rate or tariff for the facility. Our staff is available to make suggestions on how your company can operate as energy efficient as possible.
  • Power Quality – CEC works with its commercial and industrial members to evaluate and mitigate power quality issues.
  • Infrared Maintenance Services – CEC can provide infrared maintenance services of electrical equipment of commercial and industrial members.
  • Distributed Generation – CEC will work with any member installing distributed generation, emergency generators, or UPS systems.
