As a small-business owner, Paula Kostick is always eager to explore new ways to make her business more efficient. With the help of PPL Electric’s Business Energy Efficiency Program, Kostick was able to install LED lighting in five of her nine Classic Drycleaners locations.

“We’ve reduced the amount of energy we use on a daily basis, not only by having the efficiency of LED lighting, but by reducing the amount of lights needed to provide a bright, welcoming environment for both our customers and our employees,” Kostick said. “It’s a win-win for everyone.”

With a mix of incentives such as instant discounts and standard rebates, Classic Drycleaners completed five efficiency projects and saved more than 55,000 kWh of energy.

Kostick and many other small business owners benefit from the various energy efficiency programs offered by PPL Electric. Since the program began in 2009 more than 100,000 small businesses have participated in PPL Electric’s energy efficiency programs, collectively saving almost 1.3M MWh of energy.
