Rates and shopping

What are PPL’s rates, and how can you save money on your electric bill?

Your electric bill is made up of charges for different aspects of the power grid. These charges can be broken into two main categories:

From right to left:  electricity transported over high-voltage transmission lines, voltage being reduced at a substation, lower distribution lines, overhead transformer further reduces voltage and electricity delivered to a house.


Covers PPL's costs for equipment, crews and customer service.

If you live in our territory, PPL is your electric delivery company.

Electricity is generated at a power plant


Covers both the generation of electricity and the movement of it across high-voltage transmission lines.

You can shop for this portion, or we’ll buy the electricity for you and pass along the costs without mark-up.

Think of PPL like a package delivery company: You can order an item from a store (electricity from a supplier), and another company (PPL) will deliver it.
