Encourages Consumers to Continue Working with PPL to Address Billing and Payment Issues and Contact the PUC if the Utility is Not Responsive

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) has initiated a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding unusually high bills recently received by customers served by PPL Electric Utilities (PPL), along with the accuracy and integrity of PPL’s billing practices. 

The matter has been referred to the PUC’s independent Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement for investigation – which enforces the state public utility code and PUC regulations.

In addition to the investigation, the Commission continues to encourage consumers to contact PPL with concerns about the size and accuracy of their bills, and work with the utility to explore options for corrected bills, payment options and financial assistance options.

Consumers who do not believe that PPL has addressed their issues or believe that the utility has not responded appropriately to their situation, should contact the PUC’s Bureau of Consumer Services (BCS) at 1-800-692-7380. Additionally, consumers who are unable to reach PPL agents or do not receive a response from PPL should contact BCS to report those issues.
