Investing today to power tomorrow

PPL Electric has invested more than $132 million in automation technology. It’s an investment that has truly paid off. Thanks to its extensive use of smart grid technology, the utility’s distribution system has become one of the most reliable in the country.

Providing safe habitats

To help the birds and ensure their customers continue to have excellent and reliable service, PPL Electric, LG&E and KU, and WPD have all installed platforms in their service territories to provide safe locations for ospreys to nest. It’s part of the company’s continued commitment to conservation.

Driving a cleaner, greener future

It’s full speed ahead for the U.K.’s electric vehicle market, and PPL’s Western Power Distribution team is helping to pave the way. WPD Innovation Engineer Mark Dale wants his utility to be ready for the resulting electricity demand by taking a proactive approach and preventing any potential speed bumps.
