Engineer by day, firefighter by night

For PPL Electric Utilities support engineer, Allyson Kilheffer, helping to keep customers’ lights on during the day isn’t enough. Helping to keep them safe in her off-hours is important too.

We put our heart into helping our communities

Dedication to the communities we serve is at the heart of our values. Our employees across the United Kingdom and United States bring that dedication to life, donating time and effort to help revitalize neighborhoods and improve the lives of people who call our regions home.

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.

Our communities depend on us, and we deliver.

A switch flips; the lights go on. A button is pressed; the local weatherman comes to life on television. A dial is turned; an air conditioner whirs to life cooling a stifling room. 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.

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.”
