PPL programs to assist customers in paying bills

PPL has provided the Township with the following message regarding paying bills

When the going gets tough, Pennsylvanians band together. At PPL Electric Utilities, we’re taking several steps to look out for our customers during these challenging times. We’re working day and night to continue safely and reliably delivering electricity. We won’t cut service to any customers for unpaid bills until further notice and we have waived all late payment fees, effective March 16.

PPL also has several programs available to help customers who are having a hard time paying their bills:

OnTrack offers a lower, fixed monthly bill and debt forgiveness for customers who make 150 percent of the poverty level or less.

Operation HELP is funded by our company, employees and customers, and can assist customers who make 200 percent of the federal poverty level or less. Grants help pay customer electric and heating bills, including for oil or gas heat. PPL Foundation recently donated an extra $500,000 to Operation HELP. To apply for either Operation HELP or OnTrack visit www.pplelectric.com/billhelp or call 1-800-342-5775.

CARES can help customers who are experiencing a temporary hardship. Learn more or apply by calling 1-800-358-6623.

No matter what your situation is, if you’re having trouble paying your bill contact us and we’ll see what we can do to help. We’re all in this together. Stay safe and healthy.
