PPL Vegetation Management
Recently, PPL has embarked on a vegetation management project along high-voltage transmission lines in the area. They have reached out to local municipalities in an effort to provide information to residents regarding the project. Below are some of PPL's reasons for doing this work:

  • It is critical that we maintain the reliability of our electric transmission system.
  • PPL Electric Utilities is required to meet federal reliability standards on certain high-voltage lines.
  • Transmission vegetation management work is required so we can keep the lights on for homes and businesses throughout the region.
  • We understand this work can cause concern for some individual landowners, and we are sensitive to that. Our first priority has to be reliable electric service for millions of people in this region. We are always willing to meet with property owners to hear their concerns and discuss the work we need to do to keep our lines safe and reliable.
  • Our increased vegetation management activity is already paying dividends for customers in terms of maintaining a reliable electric system.
  • We take very seriously our obligation to keep our part of the nation's power grid reliable.

For more information on this project, you may view this document, or visit PPL's website.
