Kenergy Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Consolidation

July 1, 2024 marks 25 years since Green River Electric (organized in 1936) and Henderson-Union Electric Cooperative (organized in 1937) consolidated to become Kenergy Corp. Henderson-Union was the first electric cooperative in Kentucky to sell electricity to a member. Frank T. Street of Cardinal Farms in Henderson County received electricity from the cooperative in October 1937.

Kenergy vowed to continue the legacies of Green River Electric and Henderson-Union Electric Cooperative by providing safe and reliable electricity at an affordable price for our cooperative members. With the consolidation of the two cooperatives, Kenergy serves 14 western Kentucky counties and maintains over 7,200 miles of power lines. We are proud to continue to serve more than 59,000 homes and businesses in our service territory and thank our members for being an integral part of the cooperative family.
