EKPC is owned by 16 electric distribution co-ops located in Central and Eastern Kentucky. Those cooperatives provide electric service to more than 1 million Kentuckians. EKPC's role is to provide electric power to its 16 owner-members.
EKPC owns and operates four major power plants totaling nearly 3,000 megawatts in capacity, as well as more than 2,800 miles of high-voltage transmission lines.
