Save energy and money during Energy Awareness Month

Save energy and money during Energy Awareness Month

There are opportunities all throughout your home to help you save money by using less energy. We could all use a few extra dollars these days. That’s why we developed a virtual, online experience to help you find those hidden savings.

Here are a few easy tips that you’ll discover when you start your virtual energy saving journey at SaveWithPPL.com.

Switch. Then flip the switch.

It sounds simple, but if you haven’t made the switch to LED lightbulbs, you’re leaving money on the table. LEDs may look more expensive at the cash register, but they pay off. They have the same brightness as traditional bulbs, but they use 90% less energy and can save you up to $75 a year in electricity. Plus, they last 35 times longer than traditional bulbs.

Get a thermostat with a higher IQ

When the temperature outside fluctuates, it’s easy to forget to change your inside thermostat – or to know what temperature to change it to. A smart thermostat can help.

These devices automatically adjust based on your behavior, your preferences, and the current temperature. And you can change your temperature from anywhere using a mobile app. Install a smart thermostat and you could save up to $50 a year in energy.

We even offer rebates up to $100 to get you started.

You may be leaking money.

Keep warm air from escaping your home this winter by installing weatherstripping. Even the smallest gaps can lead to big leaks. You could save up to 15% on your energy bill when you weatherstrip your leaky doors and windows. Check out tips on how to track down air leaks on our blog at pplelectric.com/airleaks.

Save now. Save later.

If the refrigerator in your kitchen — or even the one in your garage — was made before 1993, we’ve got bad news and good news.

The bad news? You’re probably using twice the energy you need. The good news? We’ll pay you $50 for that energy monster and haul it away for free so you can upgrade to an ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator.

How does your attic measure up?

How does your attic measure up?

According to ENERGY STAR®, 9 out of 10 homes in the U.S. are under-insulated. To see if you’re ready for cooler winter temperatures, use the following steps to check your insulation levels. Then, you can earn up to $700 in combined air sealing and insulation rebates.

Diagram of how to measure insulationGrab some gloves, a ruler and a flashlight, head upstairs and check your attic insulation:

  • Visual check. Scan your attic to see if the insulation is level with or below the floor joists. If it is, chances are you need more insulation.
  • Measure up. Using a ruler or measuring tape, measure the depth of your insulation. 16”-18” of insulation depth is typically recommended for northern climates.

If your insulation needs an update, our rebates can help. We offer attic insulation rebates for 75% of the cost (up to $500 for electric heat and up to $200 for non-electric heat).

Before you insulate, consider updating your air sealing to improve energy efficiency and help prevent moisture and mold. We offer an additional rebate of up to $200 for air sealing, which can improve efficiency by up to 20%.

Plus, if you’re a PPL Electric customer, you can earn up to $350 in bonus rebates when pairing an attic insulation upgrade with other qualifying measures. Learn more on our Comprehensive Retrofit Bonus page.

Get winterized with cozy rebates

Get winterized with cozy rebates

Winter is coming. But you can take control of your electric bill with rebates on ENERGY STAR® certified products.

Up to $450 rebates on certified heat pumps: Heat pumps transfer heat into or out of your home depending on the season. That means you don’t need to use energy to generate heat in the winter or cool air in the summer.

$400 rebates on ductless mini-split heat pumps: Mini-split heat pumps can provide highly efficient, year-round heating and cooling in spaces without existing ductwork.

$400 rebates on heat pump water heaters: Like a refrigerator in reverse, a heat pump water heater captures heat from the surrounding air to heat the water in the tank.

Up to $100 rebates on smart thermostats: Many models can learn to automatically adjust temperatures based on your schedule and preferences.
