Incentives for Investing in Energy Efficiency

We offer incentives on a wide variety of energy efficiency projects. These incentives can help your business reduce payback time and offset the cost of energy efficiency upgrades.

Incentive amounts are effective June 1, 2022, and are calculated annually and contingent upon the review and acceptance of savings claims. 


Pre-approval is required for custom projects and incentives offered through our Direct Discount Program prior to beginning construction.


kW savings calculation is based on Summer Coincident peak demand savings. For further explanation, view our summer peak demand video. This timeframe is June through August (excluding weekends and holidays) from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.


Business Incentive Structure
Lighting and Efficient Equipment  $0.075 / kWh  $215 / kW
Custom/Solar $0.075 / kWh $250 / kW
CHP $0.00 / kWh $1,000 / kW
Direct Discount Program $0.16 / kWh $250 / kW


*Effective December 7, 2022, all solar project incentives will be calculated and paid based on energy usage displaced from PPL Electric Utilities’ system. Customers without kWh load offset by solar are not eligible for incentives.


If you’d like to receive the current incentive of $1,000 per peak kW demand, you need to submit your solar installation application, along with all the required documentation needed for pre-approval, no later than 11:59 p.m. on December 6, 2022. Learn more

Important Note:

PPL has updated the program's Total Resource Cost effectiveness requirement. All CHP projects have to meet a minimum TRC of 0.70.  All other projects have to meet a minimum TRC of 0.85.
