PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The U.S. Department of Energy has transferred a Caterpillar SR4 diesel generator to the Paducah Area Community Reuse Organization.

It comes at far below market value to use as a backup generator to the Graves Co. Fiscal Court, according to the DOE. It will save Graves County thousands of dollars and fixed a problem that would have been costly to resolve, according to officials.

Graves Co. is one of five counties represented by PACRO as well as McCracken, Marshall, Ballard in Kentucky and Massac in southern Illinois.
