 Solar Energy

PPL Renewable Energy designs and constructs photovoltaic systems that convert the energy from sunlight into electricity.

Solar energy technology helps reduce clients’ operating costs by using a reliable and renewable power source. Rooftop or ground-mounted solar panels can significantly reduce your energy bills by generating electricity during the daytime or “peak” hours when power prices are highest.

PPL Renewable Energy’s portfolio includes a growing number of solar energy facilities throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey and will continue to explore partnership opportunities to develop solar energy projects.

 Featured Solar Projects

PPL Renewable Energy partnered with UGI Corporation and Crayola, the maker of children’s art and stationary products, to build a state-of-the-art 15-acre solar panel park at the Crayola facility in Forks Township. More than 26,000 fixed photovoltaic solar panels installed on Crayola’s property will convert sunlight into electricity, generating 1.9 megawatts of electrical power. The solar facility will provide 10 percent of Crayola’s total annual energy consumption and enough energy to produce 1 billion crayons annually.
