Pennyrile Rural Electric Cooperative serves 46,000 members in parts of nine Kentucky counties: Christian, Trigg, Logan, Todd, Muhlenberg, Lyon, Caldwell, Butler, and Simpson. Residential customers who own existing homes are eligible for financing to fund a new energy efficient heat pump system, pending a credit check. Customers can borrow up to $10,000 for an energy efficient heat pump that is at least 13.0 SEER or up to $12,500 for an advanced heat pump or geothermal system. The heat pump or geothermal system must be installed by a Pennyrile approved contractor and will undergo a post-installation inspection.
