May 1 could see rate increase

PPL Electric Utilities recently filed a request with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to implement a distribution system improvement charge to recover costs associated with new capital investments, under a state law signed in early 2012.

The request could take effect on May 1. The potential impact on a customer's bill is expected to be less than two-tenths of one percent, or seven cents on a typical monthly residential bill for 1,000 kilowatt-hours of usage. Such system improvement charges are designed to provide customers with improved reliability and rate stability.
