Supercharge your technology in Kentucky.


With our competitive electric power rates, excellent reliability and business-friendly climate, there’s no question that Kentucky is the best possible place to build or relocate your technology business and data centers.

What makes us shine brighter than the rest? LG&E and KU's average rate for data centers is $.0575 per kWh with a 2,500 kW load at 90% load factor.

And when IT represents 30 to 40 percent of a typical company's energy consumption, and corporate data center operating costs are reportedly growing by 20 percent per year, these numbers can make a big difference.

LG&E and KU provide exceptional reliability, a key factor to ensure smooth operations on a daily basis.

Kentucky offers competitive incentives to those interested in moving or building their data center or technology business here.

Kentucky also boasts a low cost of doing business and a low risk of natural disasters, both of which are highly desirable when searching for the perfect location for your data center or technology business.
