Seats contested for western Ky. utility board after power rate increases

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, June 8, 2014 9:04 AM EDT

Competition is fierce for a couple of seats on a western Kentucky utility board that recently saw rate increases.

The Messenger-Inquirer reports one seat on the Kenergy Corp. board that represents west Daviess County has an 18-year incumbent facing two challengers.

Larry Elder says it's the first time he's had competition for the seat. He says he thinks the competition stems from recent power rate increases by Big Rivers Electric Corp.

Big Rivers Electric Corp. is the wholesale power supplier for Kenergy and two other distributive co-ops in western Kentucky. Altogether, they serve about 112,000 customers in 22 counties.

Big Rivers raised rates after an aluminum smelter left its system to purchase power on the open market.

Board election results will be announced on June 10.
