Important information for customers from PPL Electric Utilities

January 7, 2014

PJM, the independent electricity grid operator for this region, has requested that the public conserve electricity.

Customers should do what they can to conserve electricity - especially from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Please take these simple electricity conservation steps:

  • Set thermostats lower than usual, if health permits.
  • Postpone using major electric appliances such as stoves, dishwashers and clothes dryers until mid-day or after 9 p.m., when the demand for electricity decreases.
  • Turn off electric lights and appliances that you do not need or are not using.

Conserving electricity helps ensure adequate power supplies.
