Kenergy Receives $10.2 Million Award from Governor Beshear

Kenergy has been awarded $10.2 million from Governor Andy Beshear to help fund the Connect, powered by Kenergy project bringing high-speed internet to the electric cooperative’s members. This money will help buildout to 2,353 homes and business in Henderson County and 1,221 homes and businesses in Daviess County.

Governor Beshear presented the check to Tim Lindahl, Kenergy President and CEO on Friday as part of a press conference at Henderson County High School. Lindahl highlighted the critical need for western Kentuckians to have access to high-speed, reliable internet.

“Today’s broadband needs are what electricity was to the commonwealth in the 1930s,” said Tim Lindahl, Kenergy President and CEO. “By installing infrastructure that is owned by the people it serves, giving all of the benefits back to those people, we are on pace with this funding to solve this problem for generations.

Connect, powered by Kenergy is one of the fastest fiber deployment projects in the United States anticipating a full system buildout by the end of 2026.

“We feel like what Kenergy is doing is sparking a broadband transformation in western Kentucky,” Lindahl said. We are grateful for our partnership with Conexon and now the state with this funding opportunity to keep this monumental shift for our communities going.”
