Kentucky Power cannot connect power to any home or business where there is damage to the service entrance. The service entrance is the area located 1) at the meter, 2) between the meter and the home’s electrical panel, or 3) the location where Kentucky Power’s service conductors connects to the home/business owner’s service entrance cable. Customers need to have a qualified electrician repair this damage before power can be restored to the home or business.
