Direct Discount Program

Want to be more energy efficient but fear the upfront cost and time? The PPL Electric Direct Discount Program provides attractive incentives to small business GS-1 or GS-3 rate code customers. Eligible measures include:

  • Refrigeration
  • Compressed Air
  • HVAC Equipment and Tune-Ups
  • Domestic Hot Water
  • Lighting (Integrated fixtures only; no bulbs or lamps)
  • Smart Thermostats

Developed with the Small Business in Mind:

  • Offers higher incentive to help offset the capital investment for energy efficiency projects.
  • Requires that improvements be installed by an approved PPL Electric contractor.
  • No application for the customer. The contractor handles the paperwork!
  • All small and medium PPL Electric 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.
  • For retrofit projects only. If you have a new construction project, it can be submitted through our Standard program.

Program Highlights:

  • All projects require pre-approval prior to beginning construction in order to remain eligible.
  • Efficient Equipment incentives are calculated at $0.10/kWh - up to 80% of total project cost.
  • Incentives are paid directly to the contractor. Customer is responsible for a much lower portion of the project costs due to the incentive.
