It’s a bright look ahead in 2024

We’re excited for what the future holds and looking forward to 2024.

Across our PPL family of companies, we’ve set a goal to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 while maintaining reliability and affordability for our more than 3.5 million customers in Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

We’re pursuing a comprehensive clean energy strategy to achieve this goal, and as part of our strategy, we’re focused on driving innovation and advancing technologies that can be scaled safely, reliably and affordably.

Strengthening our commitment to a clean energy future

Across our PPL family of companies, we’re investing in grid modernization to strengthen grid reliability and resiliency for our customers and advancing a cleaner energy future without compromising on affordability. It’s part of our overall plan to invest $12 billion from 2023 through 2026 across our Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Virginia operations in support of our utility of the future strategy.

This October during National Energy Awareness Month, we’re highlighting some of the ways we’re investing in this transition through innovation and collaborative efforts.

Collaboration Aims to Accelerate Low-Carbon Energy Technologies

With the understanding that existing technology is not enough to achieve increasingly ambitious decarbonization goals, the Electric Power Research Institute and Gas Technology Institute in 2020 launched a five-year initiative to accelerate the development and demonstration of low-carbon energy technologies.
