Colder weather is arriving in western Kentucky and that means it will be getting tougher for many families to pay their utility bills.
Pennyrile Electric tries to help some of those needy families through its “Plus-One” program, which gives customers an opportunity to add a dollar to their monthly bill. Those dollars add up and Brent Gilkey of Pennyrile says that money is distributed through area charities to people in need.
Gilkey says every dollar will help pay someone in need's electric bill, which becomes even more important in the cold-weather months.
Registration is as easy as filling out the form that will come with next month's bill and participants can withdraw at any time.
