The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has approved an LED (light-emitting diode) rate for PPL Electric Utilities customers that will apply to leased streetlights and area lights across our system with LED fixtures. Effective January 1, 2016, PPL customers may request to convert their existing high pressure sodium and mercury vapor streetlights and area lights to more efficient LED fixtures.
The rates for these lights are for their maintenance and repair and do not cover the cost of the power to operate the lights. As with power for their home or business, customers can shop for their electricity to save money over the price to compare.
LED fixtures are longer lasting, higher light quality,and significantly more efficient than high-pressure sodium or mercury vapor fixtures thereby using significantly less electricity to produce the same light output.*
*PPL can’t guarantee cost savings through LED streetlight conversions.
Victorian-style lights. No option to convert this type of fixture to LED.
