Direct Discount Program

Want to be more energy efficient but fear the upfront cost and time? The PPL Direct Discount Program provides attractive incentives for measures such as lighting, compressed air, and refrigeration to help small businesses offset project costs. Best of all, there’s no paperwork, just quick and long-term savings. All small business GS-1 or GS-3 rate code customers are eligible.

  • Offers higher incentive to help offset the capital investment for energy efficiency projects

  • No application for the customer. The contractor handles the paperwork!
  • All small and medium PPL business customers with a GS1 or GS3 rate code are eligible. Not sure of your rate code? Check your current utility bill. If it states GS1 or GS3, you’re eligible for an incentive
