Customers Saving a Quarter Billion with Energy Efficiency Tech

Customers Saving a Quarter Billion with Energy Efficiency Tech

A Pennsylvania utilities company says its customers are saving $250 million a year by reducing energy usage, which is good news for builders looking to convince clients to install energy efficiency tech.

PPL Electric Utilities just released the data about its energy efficiency program that shows residents and businesses have cut their electricity usage by more than two billion kilowatt-hours per year. That’s the equivalent of taking 327,000 cars off the road, according to PPL’s press release.

Through the program, customers have installed energy efficient lighting, HVAC systems, refrigerators, water heaters and other appliances. And it’s more than paying off in their wallets by a quarter billion dollars collectively per year.

Now, that’s a concrete marketing message you can share with your clients to show energy efficiency tech works.

Hundreds of thousands of customers have participated in one of PPL’s energy efficiency programs–homes, businesses, government and education. That tells you there’s interest out there in “green” technology.

There will be even more savings in years to come. In the next phase, which starts in June and runs through May 2021, PPL’s energy efficiency programs are projected to save customers an additional 1.6 billion kilowatt-hours per year. These programs are in support of Pennsylvania Act 129, which requires electric companies to help customers reduce energy use.

PPL Electric Utilities provides electric delivery service to more than 1.4 million homes and businesses in Pennsylvania.
