Helping is in our DNA

For nearly 100 years, PPL has been turning the power on for our customers. But, our job doesn’t end there. Serving the communities we call home is at the core of our values. This value runs deep at PPL and the spirit of volunteerism and philanthropy is part of our culture. It’s how we do business, and it’s our way of keeping our promise to support a brighter future.

As each new day begins and ends, we are there, powering our customers’ lives. But we understand that our customers, and their communities, need more than just power to thrive.
