When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the Kentucky Utilities Co call center opens before trying to call.

An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call

The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Kentucky Utilities Co phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call.

When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.
