Grayson RECC is a Touchstone Energy® Cooperative, which is a national network of electric cooperatives that provides resources and leverages partnerships to help our member cooperatives and their employees better engage and serve their members. By working together, Touchstone Energy cooperatives in 46 states supply reliable, affordable and safe energy to 32 million member-owners every day.

Grayson RECC is a Touchstone Energy Cooperative and is located just to the west of the Appalachian Mountains in the rolling hills of northeastern Kentucky. We have a membership of approximately 15,000 members and around 2200 miles of primary lines. Our service area covers a total of 6 counties and is about 60 miles from top to bottom. Our system is a winter peaking system with 100.275 Megawatts of capacity from 11 substations. The substations are fed by East Kentucky Power Cooperative located in Winchester, Kentucky.

We have great accessibility to many larger cities. From the heart of our territory,Grayson is less than two hours drive to Cincinnati, OH, Lexington, Kentucky and Huntington, WV. In just three hours you can be in Charleston, WV, Louisville, KY and Columbus, OH. We have a great infra-structure of modern highways that open up the beautiful country side making the drive very scenic and stimulating.

Our headquarters are located in Grayson in a beautifully restored building known as the Bagby Mansion. It was constructed in 1929 by the Bagby Family and is three stories, with over 15,000 square feet of floor space. It is trimmed with beautiful walnut trim and cedar lined closets that are original to the home. Our community room was formerly a ballroom to the Bagby’s and has oak hardwood floors with inlaid walnut. The walls in our lobby and ballroom are completely walnut floor to ceiling. Now heated by Geo-thermal heating and cooling systems, it is a building we are proud to occupy.

Grayson is also know as the “Heart of the Parks”. Within a 25 mile radius of Grayson you will find three state parks; Carter Caves, Grayson Lake, and Greenbo Lake. All these state parks offer a multitude of activities for family and business outings. Activities like swimming, boating, fishing, volley ball, horseshoes, miniature golf, camping, caving, golf and much, much more make them great places to spend time. Also within a 50 minute drive is Cave Run Lake. One of the countries best muskie lakes, they too offer many of the same activities as the other state parks.

If you have the opportunity to stop by, please visit and we will be glad to give you a tour of our office and information about our great community.

Programs & Rebates

Heat Pump Retrofit

Buying a heat pump?

We offer a rebate for that. Members may receive up to a $750 incentive for replacement of an existing heat source that must be either an electric furnace, baseboard heat, ETS (Electric Thermal Storage), or ceiling cable heat, with a high-efficiency heat pump. The heat pump must be rated at 14 SEER/8.0 HSPF or higher. This program is for existing homes that are at least two years old and replacing electric resistance heat. New manufactured homes also apply.

All rebates for electrically-heated, residential homes only.

Button-Up

Increase your home’s efficiency and your comfort through simple upgrades like air sealing or adding insulation to your ceiling. Your local co-op can help you identify areas where improvements need to be made and suggest weatherization techniques to reduce heat loss in your home with the Button-Up program. You may also receive up to a $750 rebate for making these improvements! To qualify, your home must be at least two years old and electrically heated. A home energy review including an air leakage test is required before and after the weatherization is performed. So, contact your local co-op before you begin.

Touchstone Energy Home

Make your dream home a Touchstone Energy Home for superior comfort and energy savings. By meeting a set of energy-efficiency standards, we can certify that your home qualifies as a Touchstone Energy Home. These homes typically use 30 percent less energy than the same home built to typical construction standards.

Simple Saver

The SimpleSaver program is another way that we are working to keep your electricity affordable and our environment healthy. We will pay you up to $20 annually for each central air conditioner you enroll. And you will receive those bill credits each and every year you remain in the program.

Plus you may receive a sign-on bonus of up to $20.

Why are we willing to pay you? Because limiting electric use at peak times during the summer and winter delays the construction of expensive new power plants and helps keep your energy costs affordable. Managing peak load also decreases Kentucky’s carbon footprint and gives all of us more time to explore affordable sources of renewable energy.

ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home

If you’re thinking of purchasing a new manufactured home, be sure to mention the ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home program. If you upgrade your home to ENERGY STAR and install a heat pump, you may be eligible for a rebate.

You may save an average of more than 4,000 kWh per year when compared to the standard manufactured home. Right now, that’s an average savings of about $400 each year or about $30 a month. Since the ENERGY STAR certified home uses substantially less energy for heating, cooling and water heating than a standard manufactured home, it’s less expensive to run.

*Rebate is for EPA approved ENERGY STAR homes not Energy Smart homes provided by Clayton brand dealerships.

CARES

The Community Assistance Resources for Energy Savings (CARES) program began in early 2015, and provides an incentive to enhance the weatherization and energy efficiency services provided to the end-use members by the Kentucky Community Action Agencies (CAA) network. EKPC and its owner-members provide an incentive to the CAA implementing the project on behalf of the end-use member. This program is available to end-use members who qualify for weatherization and energy-efficiency services through their local CAA in all service territories of participating cooperatives. The maximum incentive possible per household is $2,000.
