Chamber of Commerce
ASHLAND, Ky. — Kentucky Power on Thursday announced a $75,000 gift to Ashland Community and Technical College (ACTC). The grant from the American Electric Power (AEP) Foundation and Kentucky Power will fund the College’s Solar SmartFlower training project.
“This grant is a significant investment in our young adults and our community as they learn about energy through solar power,” said Kentucky Power President Brett Mattison. “ACTC is such a valuable resource in our community and we are glad to partner with them by helping fund this program.”
The purchase of a Solar SmartFlower would be used as an educational trainer to provide power to ACTC’s specified training facilities and equipment, such as an electric car charging station. The project will open many doors for ACTC to better utilize and expand the electrical technology department so that students can learn the cutting-edge technology that is required.

This Too Shall Pass
Hello from the desk of the Ashland Alliance. It would be hard to put a positive spin on the days and activity of the last week. We have been challenged. We have been asked to think about others and protect ourselves. Weeks like this one will pass and our economy and interactions with one another will return. Please take care and practice social distancing. Think about how to protect you and your family.
I am sad to announce the Winter Wonderland of Lights Christmas Parade is officially cancelled for 2020. The Winter Wonderland Committee had to make a difficult decision. They want to keep our traditions alive but look out for the health of all of you. It will be back, and it will be even sweeter next year as we gather to celebrate the season. For now, enjoy the lights in the park, be safe and take care.
The Alliance is here to help! If your business needs help adjusting to how to operate in today's restrictions, we are here and can help! People still need ways to purchase items and services in a safe responsible fashion. We are here to help your company fill those needs. Give us a call and let's talk.
Please be safe this Thanksgiving holiday. Enjoy those close to you and let us all make it through this together.
