We have moved! The Energy and Environment Cabinet has moved most of its employees into a new, five-story building located at 300 Sower Boulevard in Frankfort. We have updated these web pages with the new addresses and phone numbers of employees.


Kentucky's remarkable natural resources have helped shape our economy, culture and history. Nevertheless, these resources also provide us with the responsibility of good stewardship. Kentucky’s residents and businesses must work together to preserve the resource quality and diversity that make Kentucky a great place to live, work and play. 

The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) has been given the duty to lead this effort to protect and enhance Kentucky’s environment. The department invites you to join us in this effort. By working together, we will successfully keep Kentucky's environment as one of our greatest treasures.
