PPL Electric Utilities - Business Incentive Program

March 07, 2023


PPL Electric Utilities offers incentives on a variety of energy efficiency projects, including solar and CHP.

Incentives are valued based on peak demand reductions which are determined as the average of the demand reduction during June, July, and August peaks. The peak period is non-holiday weekdays between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Effective December 7, 2022, solar project incentives will be calculated and paid based on energy usage displaced from PPL Electric Utilities’ system for both demand and energy. Customers without kWh load offset by solar are not eligible for the incentives.
