Infrastructure and Utilities in Muhlenberg County Kentucky

An increasingly competitive business environment compels companies to examine the long-term costs of production and distribution and to focus on regional differences in the net cost of doing business. Among the more significant factors having a direct influence on bottom-line costs is the annual capital that must be committed to utility consumption.

Muhlenberg County Kentucky has long enjoyed a competitive advantage in the provision of energy, natural gas, and water supply. The state's large coal reserves and proximity to coal-burning utility plants, a direct location on the interstate natural gas pipeline corridor and an abundant natural water supply derived from an extensive network of rivers, streams, and lakes keep Kentucky's utility costs among the lowest in the nation.

Low electric rates

Kentucky enjoys a tremendous competitive advantage in the provision of electric energy, natural gas, and water supply. Kentucky's electric power costs in the industrial sector ranked the lowest in the nation east of the Mississippi for 2007 based on annual rankings compiled by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Kentucky has consistently placed among the five lowest cost states for industrial electric power since 1990. In 2007, Kentucky had the fourth lowest industrial electric costs among all fifty states. Kentucky is well served by its abundant coal reserves, its proximity to the natural gas pipeline corridor, and its wealth of water resources.
