The member cooperatives set up EKPC as a not-for-profit generation and transmission utility with headquarters in Winchester, Ky. EKPC's purpose is to generate energy and ship it to co-ops that distribute it to retail customers. Today, EKPC provides wholesale energy and services to 16 distribution cooperatives through power plants, peaking units, hydro power and more than 2,800 miles of transmission lines. Together, EKPC and member cooperatives are known as Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.
From our humble beginnings, we have become one of Kentucky's fastest growing electric utilities. The distribution cooperatives supply energy to 519,000 Kentucky homes, farms, businesses and industries across 87 counties.
Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are owned, operated and governed by the people who use their energy and services. The 16 distribution cooperatives, which are called member systems, own EKPC.
