PPL Electric Utilities as part of Pennsylvania's Act 129 offers numerous rebates and incentives for its residential customers to improve energy efficiency. All residential customers of PPL Electric are eligible for the incentives. 

Interested applicants must first contact a qualified contractor to install the equipment. PPL utility maintains a database of all participating contractors that the customers can reach out to for installations. After the work is completed the customer can apply online or mail in the rebate form. The applications for the rebates for appliances and equipment must be submitted within 90 days of installation. Applications for insulation must be based on an energy audit. Rebates will be sent to the customers through a check.
