One of Pennsylvania’s largest utility companies was recently recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation for their efforts in certain sustainability practices involving the foundation’s Tree Line USA program.  PPL received an award from the foundation for meeting specific requirements defined in the program.  PPL serves energy consumers throughout the state of Pennsylvania including both the Harrisburg and Allentown areas.  Energy consumers in these and other parts of Pennsylvania have the option to choose their energy provider so not all consumers are necessarily served by PPL.  Those interested in switching will want to call Electric Rates to compare rates before making the switch from one company to another.

  • PPL spends approximately $30 million each year on vegetation that the company maintains that covers a distance of somewhere around eight thousand miles.
  • Part of the program activities that PPL participates in is providing education regarding proper tree planting around power lines.
  • PPL also participates in various Arbor Day activities defined by the foundation as being particularly important.
  • Approximately 1.4 million Pennsylvania energy consumers are served by PPL Electric Utilities.

Tree planting is a great way to combat the damage done by electricity generation but planting around power lines can be dangerous if the right guidelines are not followed.  PPL provides its customers with education regarding these issues and more which results in safer practices overall.  The company serves a considerably large number of consumers so the information they provide reaches far and wide.  It is likely for these reasons that the National Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters awarded PPL Electric Utilities with the Tree Line USA award.  Energy consumers interested in having their services provided by PPL should compare their rates to their current company in order to determine which company offers the most benefits, both fiscally and environmentally.
