Paperless billing continues to grow in popularity among PPL Electric Utilities customers — and for good reason.

It reduces clutter and offers convenience and security. Couple it with automatic bill pay, and you have a seamless process to receive and pay your electric bill. Plus, you can sign up for bill-due reminder alerts by text, phone, email or all three.

At the end of 2016, we had more than 250,000 paperless customers. That’s an 82 percent increase compared to just two years ago.

Becoming a paperless billing customer can bring perks beyond convenience. Just ask Michael W. of Carlisle. Late last year, he was randomly selected from among our residential paperless billing customers and received $1,000. A long-time customer, he only recently signed up for paperless billing.

Keep watching for incentives to ditch your paper bill.
