PPL doesn’t make it’s money by making electricity, but rather, from delivering it.
A spokesperson says they “basically act as a FedEx for a product.”
PPL says it’s OK to switch to those other suppliers and that they don’t compete with them. Customers should also know that PPL crews will still come out if there’s an outage.
This also applies to Med-Ed, as default electric suppliers will always be there to deliver your electricity.
