PPL is hoping to “modestly” increase distribution rates next year. This is the regulated part of your electricity bill which is not subject to competition. There is no word yet on the amount they are proposing or whether the PUC is likely to approve the request.
Either way people should know this is unrelated to electric competition. As long as you live in PPL territory you’ll be paying whatever distribution fee the PUC approves.
Before deregulation your entire electric bill was determined by the PUC.
