Environmental Surcharge FAQ

What is the environmental surcharge? The environmental surcharge pays the cost to meet EPA regulations on power plant emissions. Government regulations have forced our power supplier to install equipment to reduce emissions from power plants and comply with EPA rules. Your bill is higher because of the rising cost of cleaner air.

Why does this surcharge appear on my bill? Many utilities in Kentucky have had an environmental surcharge for a decade or more. Our power supplier absorbed tens of millions of dollars of these costs for years, but can no longer do so. Just like Shelby Energy Cooperative, our supplier is also a not-for-profit organization owned by Shelby Energy and 15 other distribution cooperatives. The surcharge started appearing on bills in August 2005.

Where does the surcharge go? When you pay the surcharge, it is passed, in full, to East Kentucky Power Cooperative in Winchester to meet the government's clean air standards. Those costs have been increasing sharply.

What steps is your supplier doing to improve the situation?

  • A new scrubber, a device that removes emissions, is going to be built for the largest generating unit.
  • East Kentucky operates the cleanest coal-generating unit in Kentucky. It produces a fraction of the emissions produced by older power plants.
  • Two more of those units are planned in the next five years.
  • Whenever practical, our supplier uses cleaner coal for fuel to lower emissions.
  • East Kentucky Power is working to contain costs.

When will the environment surcharge come down? We don't expect the surcharge to come down in the near future. The costs to meet these government regulations are continuing to increase.

What can I do about this? All my bills are going up.

  • We certainly understand these charges from our power supplier are difficult, especially for people on low or fixed incomes.
  • We can't control the price of fuel or clean air, but one of our Touchstone Energy programs could reduce your bill.  We offer the button-up program and rebates on energy efficient heat pumps.
  • Water heaters and other appliances consume a lot electricity. Members can turn down their water heaters or lower thermostats and save.
  • There are many ways to lower your bill. For a free copy of our Simple Savings energy tips, come to our cooperative offices.
  • Sign up for budget or levelized billing. It eliminates the swings in your bill.
