Nolin 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.

We work for you.

A cooperative is an organization owned by the members using its facilities or services for their benefit. That’s why at Nolin RECC we consider you a member and an owner, too. You and your neighbors, the more than 32,000 other member-owners of Nolin RECC, share the responsibility of steering the cooperative. You select the board of directors and have input on important issues facing the cooperative. Through your opinions, your feedback and your votes, you help lead the cooperative through a changing utility environment day-by-day. When Nolin RECC was formed in 1938, it was one of Kentucky’s first cooperatives. An active and passionate membership helped the cooperative bring the luxury of electrification to our rural population. We’re proud of that history, but electrification is only one part of the ever-growing scope of cooperative services. We’re not only your energy provider, we’re a neighbor who grows with you. We hope you will take advantage of the many services we provide, and we hope that you will take a few moments to be involved and let us know what you think of Nolin RECC.

Nolin History

Nolin RECC delivers core values that our members have come to rely on since we were first incorporated in 1938. We believe that the best way to manage tomorrow’s change is to remember the values of the past, values like honesty, integrity, dedication, commitment, and community.

Combining computer-age techniques with common-sense values is something electric coops are used to doing. Some 78 years ago investor-owned utilities didn’t think country folk would ever use enough electricity for them to be able to make a profit from stringing lines to households beyond the city limits. But the people in small towns and rural communities could envision the value of bringing light to the countryside. They banded together and came up with a number of innovations to get electricity: new engineering of distribution lines, government loan programs, organizing the local utilities as cooperative corporations, and most of all, sharing resources with each other for the good of their communities.

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 14.3 SEER2/7.5 HSPF2 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.


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.


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.
