October Is Energy Awareness Month- Six Great Ways to Manage Your Energy Use & Save Money

bloggalenglenr

By Guest Blogger, Carol Obando-Derstine, PPL

CLICK HERE to Learn More About PPL

 

If we could harness the energy of little kids excited to trick-or-treat – or the energy of kids after a few pieces of Halloween candy – we could probably light the entire state of Pennsylvania. 

Unfortunately, that seemingly boundless source of free seasonal energy hasn’t been tapped. 

The good news is this: While there are no magic solutions for free energy, there are steps you can take to manage your energy use and reduce your electric bill as temperatures get colder and sunlight gets scarcer. 

October is Energy Awareness Month. In some places, it’s also called Energy Action Month. That might be the better name: Awareness is a good first step, but action is needed to save.

What's Your Secret to Staying Cool This Summer?

bloggalenglenr

CCEDC Guest Blogger, Carol Obando-Derstine, PPL Corporation

 

It might be a cold washcloth, or an ice cube against the wrist, or a tall glass of iced tea to drink in front of a floor fan. 

Whatever it is, I hope you’re putting it to good use. Another hot summer is here, and it’s important for everyone to take care of themselves to avoid heat-related illness. 

At PPL, we take heat-related illness very seriously. Our linemen and other employees work in the heat every day to keep your service strong. We share safety tips with them, tell them to look out for each other, and urge them to be careful. 

We care about you, our customers, too. And we hope you’ll be safe and know the risks, just like our linemen do. Read More

Peregrine Falcons Return to PPL's Tower Building After 10 Years

2018 June RAD column-FalconFeeding

This spring we've had some pretty impressive and unusual house guests. For one thing, they can average a speed of 60 miles per hour, with top speeds of 200 mph - all without a car.
 
They're peregrine falcons. And they came back to PPL's Tower Building in Allentown this spring, the first time in 10 years that a nest box on the top of the 23-story tower has hosted a pair of falcons. The initial pair laid eggs there, and we were able to watch several hatchlings join the falcon family.
 
We were thrilled to see them, as PPL has been involved for quite a while with efforts to restore the peregrine falcon population in Pennsylvania. In 1995, we began supporting the Lehigh Valley Peregrine Project, a community effort to release young peregrine falcons from the top of our headquarters building in the hopes that the falcons would come back to the area.

Every parent, especially of a younger child, worries sometimes: Have I prepared my son or daughter for the safety risks they encounter every day?

It’s easy to feel that concern. The world is full of settings where you hope your child will be safe – like crossing the street, or riding a bike, or swimming in a friend’s pool. You always hope they’ll remember the right thing to do.

Here’s some news to unfurrow your brow, parents: When it comes to electrical safety, PPL Electric Utilities has your back.

We’re once again sponsoring a lively, kid-friendly stage show called “Safety Detectives in Hot Pursuit” that brings electrical safety messages into schools. Between Oct. 16 and Nov. 10, we’ll put on 67 shows in 37 schools across central and eastern Pennsylvania, reaching more than 16,000 children.Read More

Summer has faded. Cooler, more comfortable temperatures are here. It's time to get out those flannel shirts and hoodies.

Autumn - before the snow flies and the weather grows cold -- is a great time to improve the energy efficiency of your business or home. Put in some time and investment now, and you can get the work done before really cold weather sets in. Then, save energy and money all winter.

Over the past six years, PPL Electric Utilities customers have saved more than 2 billion kilowatt-hours a year by taking advantage of our energy efficiency programs - the equivalent of taking more than 206,600 homes off the grid for a year.
