The Kentucky Municipal Energy Agency (KYMEA) and a number of partners have provided $30,000 in direct relief and contributions to a Kentucky tornado relief fund in the wake of tornadoes that hit the western part of the state on December 10, 2021.
KYMEA has partnered with nFront Consulting, Spiegel & McDiarmid, BKD, Rubin & Hays, and LightChange Technologies to provide the funds to the Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund.
KYMEA noted that it is also working with its members, the American Public Power Association, and the Kentucky Municipal Utility Association to provide storm restoration to the hardest-hit areas.
In September of 2015, ten municipal electric utilities entered into an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement creating KYMEA, a joint public agency.
