Companies Recognized for Pledge to Kentucky Save Energy Now

Fifteen companies from across Kentucky were recognized at an awards ceremony October 28 for their commitment to reducing energy usage through the Kentucky Save Energy Now (KY SEN) initiative. Administered by KPPC, KY SEN is modeled after the national Save Energy Now program, which is run by the U.S. Department of Energy. It promotes and leverages the wide array of U.S. DOE resources, but is tailored to Kentucky companies and builds upon the technical expertise of KPPC’s engineers.

KY SEN helps energy-intensive facilities build self-sustaining energy-savings programs. The goal is to reduce energy use in these facilities by 2.5 percent per year for 10 years. Through KY SEN, KPPC offers assessments, training, technology demonstrations, assistance with identifying project implementation resources and recognition of achievements.

KY SEN pledgers received their awards on October 28, 2010.
