Kentucky Recovery Act State Memo

You are here

Kentucky has substantial natural resources, including coal, oil, gas, and hydroelectric power. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is making a meaningful down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in Kentucky are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects, from energy efficiency and the smart grid to environmental cleanup and alternative fuels and vehicles. Through these investments, Kentucky’s businesses, universities, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning Kentucky to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
