The City of Henderson Kentucky Utility Commission, was presented with the Century Award from the American Public Power Association recognizing Henderson Municipal Power & Light’s (HMP&L) 125-year anniversary. The Century Award is given each year to public power utilities that have served their consumers and community continuously for 100 years.
What would become Henderson Municipal Power & Light had its beginnings with residents of the City of Henderson voting in 1895 to issue bonds to construct a coal-fired power plant to provide electricity to 154 arc lamps to illuminate the city streets at night. In 1896 the light plant became the first municipally owned generating station in Western Kentucky - producing power for households and businesses. Since that time, HMP&L has continued to provide electrical service to the community while expanding its services to include high speed internet and cloud-based phone. With an eye to the future, HMP&L has implemented energy conservation measures such as an LED light program and the addition of solar customers to the utility’s system.
For 125 years HMP&L has provided the citizens of Henderson with safe, reliable, and low-cost electric service and looks forward to serving Henderson for the next 100 years.
In July 2020, Community Energy and Henderson Municipal Power & Light (HMP&L) announced an agreement for the supply of 50 megawatts of new solar power to HMP&L customers.
Through a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement, HMP&L will purchase 100% of the output of a new solar farm under development by Community Energy in Henderson County, Kentucky. This facility is expected to produce 117 million kilowatt-hours of low-cost solar energy per year, starting in 2023. The solar project will provide approximately 20% of HMP&L’s total electricity demand.
