Environmental Stewardship

KUB works toward positive environmental change in all facets of its operation, while supporting and providing programs for its customers to do the same. 

By 2022, KUB will have powered up Knoxville's first community solar array, and by 2024, solar-generated electricity will supply 20 percent of KUB's load.

Whether in support of renewable energy or seeking out efficiency measures, KUB customers can take advantage of multiple green programs and offerings. Plus, KUB has partnered with customers and fellow community leaders to weatherize more than 1,800 low-income homes.

And KUB's operations are always evolving to be more sustainable, including LEED and Energy Star certified buildings and the only National Biosolids Partnership-Certified Program in Tennessee. 

Learn about these efforts and more in the 2021 Environmental Report and through the buttons below.
