Our companies’ fieldworkers have taken extra steps to keep themselves and customers safe – all while continuing to provide reliable energy services. This week, we take a moment to applaud their efforts, and the efforts of all of our employees, and say “thank you.”

LG&E and KU employee shares how his service shaped the leader and man he is today
LG&E’s and KU’s investments in distribution automation have helped prevent more than 16,000 electric service interruptions for customers
It takes a lot of dedication and manpower from many types of employees to keep PPL’s electric grid working properly. Today, on National Lineworker Appreciation Day, PPL thanks the ones in hardhats – the employees on the ground and up in the poles who provide reliable service.
Crews from PPL’s operating utilities are often called to help restore power in other regions, and under their mutual assistance agreements, can call in help from other utilities when it is needed.
Most people couldn’t imagine starting their day without a cup of coffee. So, when customers Don and Robin Smith from Somerset, Kentucky, saw KU trucks outside their house, Don was worried the crews would shut off power before he could brew his morning cup of Joe.
Residents in Puerto Rico are greeting workers from PPL Corporation’s utility companies with cheers and even hugs for their restoration efforts.
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.
For Jeanne Wright, the drive to help others started when she was a child. “I grew up with parents who helped others – through the church, the Boy Scouts, neighbors, PTA, elderly – and that ‘value’ was instilled in me,” Wright said. “By their examples, I learned that giving of my time and helping others was just a way of life – it’s what our beliefs tell us to do.”
Recently, Bill Spence, chairman, president and Chief Executive Officer, sat down with Steve Mitnick, editor-in-chief of Public Utilities Fortnightly for a candid discussion about PPL’s track record of success, strategy for growth, cybersecurity and the rewarding part of being CEO of PPL Corporation.
