  • Needed reform: The REINS Act

    Some utility companies in Kentucky announced in May that they would need to raise electricity rates by about 20 percent  over the next five years in order to pay for the upgrades necessary to meet stricter federal environmental regulations.

    EIS drafted a bid, which was sent to the state, for several aspects of the renovations, including demolition. That bid was accepted.
