LG&E says customers concerned about increases in their energy bills can take solace in the fact that lower natural gas commodity costs are helping hold bills down. LG&E says customers could potentially see their overall bill decrease 8% beginning in May.
LG&E has filed its quarterly gas supply clause with Kentucky Public Service Commission for the months of May, June and July. If approved, LG&E’s residential natural gas customers’ total bill will be 16% lower than the same time period in 2019, and 8% lower than the three previous months based on gas use of 60 Ccf/month.
The lower fuel costs are reflected in the “Fuel Adjustment Clause” line item on customers’ electric bill.
Customers who are having difficulty paying their bill are encouraged to contact LG&E and KU. Customer care representatives will work with customers to develop payment arrangements and connect them with available resources for additional financial support.
