KU urges support for WinterCare Energy Fund

-A A +A


In winter, home energy costs often increase as citizens try to keep their homes warm. To assist low-income customers, Kentucky Utilities created its WinterCare Energy Fund.

KU works with the Community Action Council to assist residents who may need help with paying utility bills or weatherization projects. Thousands of people have been helped by the program over the years.

KU customers can assist by donating to the fund either by making monthly contributions or one time payments with their monthly bills. Donations can also be made online at www.lge.ku.com.

Through March 31, those donations will go even further as KU will match its customers' donations dollar for dollar. In the past five years more than $600,000 has been raised for the WinterCare fund.
