Pennyrile Electric Not Increasing Rates in 2020

Pennyrile Electric has announced there will be no rate increases to members this year, unlike in previous years.

President and CEO Alan Gates says they will not be changing members’ rates in 2020. He also announced the re-election of board of director members James L. Futrell (Cumberland District), Bryson Price (Eastern District), and Duane E. Moore (Western District). Each will serve an additional three-year term.

Pennyrile Electric has awarded scholarships to twelve graduating high school seniors. This year’s recipients are Belle Englebright, Hayden Cunningham, Shelby Brown, Janae Bracey, Lantana Hight, Paige Jenkins, Margaret Gillum, Sarah Glover, Tanner McCuiston, Caroline Davenport, Autumn Hope, and Haley Hallman.

The Washington Youth Tour for 2020 has been canceled due to COVID-19. In light of that, Pennyrile Electric is sending a $1,000 scholarship to each of the students that had been selected. The students are Briley Mitchell and Parker Smith from Trigg County High School; Averie Turner and James Kinney from Hopkinsville High School; Emily Hancock from University Heights Academy; Luke Bottoms from Heritage Christian Academy; Skyler McKinney and Baylee Klees from Todd County Central High School; as well as Preston Hurt and Mallory Whitson from Logan County High School.
