Big Sandy Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation, Fleming-Mason Energy Cooperative, Inc., Grayson Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation, and Jackson Energy Cooperative administer an on-bill financing pilot program to encourage customers to implement energy efficient measures. The KY Energy Retrofit Rider program allows window caulking, door sealing, electrical outlet sealing, and attic insulation. To assist customers in implementing energy saving measures, there will be a two-year test of an on-bill financing program. The pilot program would initially target 200 customers distributed evenly among the coops.
