About Us

We’re More Than Energy

As a proactive partner in economic development, Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives strives to create the resources, tools and initiatives needed to advance our business community.

Comprised of 16 owner-member cooperatives, we continue to be a leading voice in helping companies locate and expand across the state. We also work hand in hand with community and government leaders to implement community-enhancing strategies to better support industry.

With electricity provided from East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC), a generation and transmission cooperative wholly owned by the 16 owner-member cooperatives, we power the lives of 1.1 million people in 87 Kentucky counties.

More than 3,000 megawatts in power plant capacity and more than 2,800 miles of high-voltage transmission lines ensures reliable, low-cost power to businesses and residents alike.

Our successes speak for themselves, but we never stop our pursuit of excellence in everything we do. Let us help you turn your vision into reality.
