PPL Corporation, headquartered in Allentown, Pennsylvania, is the parent company to seven regulated utility companies. Through our regulated utility subsidiaries, we deliver electricity to customers in the U.K., Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Virginia. We also deliver natural gas and generate electricity in Kentucky. PPL is also the parent company to Safari Energy, LLC, a leading provider of solar power solutions for commercial customers in the U.S.
PPL’s businesses are among the very best in customer satisfaction. In the U.S., PPL Electric Utilities, Louisville Gas & Electric, and Kentucky Utilities have repeatedly been recognized among the top of their class for residential customer satisfaction. And our four U.K. utilities were ranked by U.K. regulator Ofgem as the top four for customer satisfaction in the U.K.
PPL is driven daily by a determination to ensure that each of our customers has the power they count on every day. Fulfilling that commitment takes dedication, hard work and resources. Through 2022, PPL will invest $14 billion in energy infrastructure improvements to deliver power more reliably and efficiently for more than 10 million customers worldwide.
The energy grid is undergoing rapid transformation and PPL’s businesses continue to address new challenges head-on. We are finding ways to accommodate a more flexible, two-way flow of electricity, creating more efficiencies, and connecting more distributed energy resources like micro-grids, solar, electric vehicles and battery storage to the grid.
PPL provides energy via a vast power grid on more than 36,000 square miles of service territory across two continents. PPL’s family of companies works tirelessly to monitor, repair and upgrade PPL’s power grid daily.
