PPL Electric in Pennsylvania

AP.Power.PrimaryIcons.RGB.Black

Nearly 13 million people call Pennsylvania their home—and for good reason! The state features some of the most diverse landscapes spread across its topography, including wide stretches of farmland, mountainous regions renowned for their natural resources, and the lush forests that are an outdoorsman’s dream come true. This is apparent when you consider that Pennsylvania features an astonishing 121 state parks across 283,000 acres, while also offering cultural opportunities in iconic cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Scranton, Erie, and many more.

Serving the energy needs of 1.4 million customers in 29 counties of eastern Pennsylvania is PPL (formerly Pennsylvania Power and Light). Headquartered in Allentown, PPL understands that the future of ensuring a clean environment in Pennsylvania is directly linked to renewable generation from sustainable sources of energy. The company has begun to incorporate other types of distributed generation into its energy mix, including biofuels, CHP (combined heat and power), hydroelectricity, solar, waste and wind. In order to measure its progress and inform consumers, PPL regularly produces sustainability reports that show the company’s performance for various metrics of its operations.

When you pay your PPL bill with Arcadia Power, you help to influence more renewable energy to flow through the grid.  Arcadia Power offers a unique way to pay your electric bill automatically, without the credit card fees, all while supporting clean energy. Simply connect your PPL account to our secure platform to get started.

According to data compiled from the United States Energy Information Administration, Pennsylvania has an interesting energy mix, particularly in regard to its vast amounts of natural resources. First, Pennsylvania’s gross natural gas production comes from the Marcellus Shale area, where nearly 5.5 trillion cubic feet was produced in 2017. This made the state the nation’s 2nd-largest natural gas producer after Texas. In 2017, Pennsylvania was the third-largest coal-producing state in the country, as well as the only state mining anthracite, which has a higher heat value than other types of coal. Nuclear power also factors highly in Pennsylvania’s energy mix, with the state’s 5 facilities producing 42% of the state’s net electricity generation—more than from any other energy source. Last, the state has passed legislation that requires 18% of the electricity sold by the year 2021 to come from renewable sources, which must include at least 0.5% solar photovoltaic power. Towards this aim, renewable energy accounted for 4.5% of the state’s net electricity generation in 2017.

When you enroll in Bill Pay, Arcadia Power will receive your PPL bill and we will send you one statement. This makes how you pay PPL bills easier.

However, if you aren’t enrolled in Arcadia Power’s Bill Pay program, you will continue to receive your PPL utility bills Additionally, if you receive separate utility bills for gas, water, or sewage, those bills from your PPL (and other utilities) will continue to come in the mail.

1

Your PPL bill is sent directly to Arcadia Power.
