A climate change has been developing over the last few years that could dramatically affect every one of our customers. The "climate" in this case is not atmospheric but political and social — growing sentiment toward reducing the role of coal used to generate electricity in our nation. Whatever its ultimate course, this climate change carries enormous implications for each and every one of us, including price increases that could outpace any we have seen in our history.
At LG&E and KU, we remain committed to providing you with the safe, reliable service you have come to expect from us. In addition, we continue to research new technologies and processes to lessen the environmental impacts of coal-fired electric generation.
