Kentucky Utilities Company ranks first in electric residential study
KU ranks highest in Midwest/Midsize segment for the sixth year in a row

(LEXINGTON, Ky.) — Residential customers have once again ranked Kentucky Utilities Company first in electric residential customer satisfaction among the utility’s peers in the Midwest mid-size region. 

The honor was awarded by J.D. Power, a global leader in consumer insights, advisory services and data and analytics, following the company’s recently released J.D. Power 2021 Electric Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction Study. 

This is the sixth consecutive year KU has ranked highest in its region. KU’s sister utility, Louisville Gas and Electric Company, ranked sixth in this year’s study. KU has received six J.D. Power awards for Electric Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction. 

“We’re honored to once again be recognized by our residential customers for delivering best-in-class service,” said Eileen Saunders, LG&E and KU vice president-Customer Services. “Our employees remain steadfast in their commitment to provide safe, affordable, reliable, sustainable energy to our customers, all while helping the economy and the communities we serve continue to recover from the pandemic.”  

Awarded in December, this honor marks KU’s second J.D. Power award for 2021, and comes on the heels of the utility earning top honors in electric business customer satisfaction. Overall satisfaction is examined across six factors: power quality and reliability; corporate citizenship; price; billing and payment; communications; and customer care.
