Earth Day is coming up. And while we as a society have done a lot to improve the environment since the first Earth Day in 1970, there’s still much that we all can do to reduce our impact on the planet we call home.
From an energy standpoint, here are a few tips and ideas you can use to make a difference:
We at PPL Electric Utilities are looking for ways to limit our environmental impact as well.
For example, we’re proud to say that we’ve found a new use for old or broken power poles that will keep 1,600 tons of wooden waste out of landfills every year. We’re working with a new vendor who, in a responsible manner, uses the poles as fuel for producing energy.
In addition to lightening our load on landfills, this agreement also reduces our cost to dispose of the poles – supporting our ongoing efforts to operate efficiently and provide service that is safe, reliable and a good value.
You may also have heard that we’ve added 15 electric Chevrolet Volts to our vehicle fleet, and are installing battery-operated lifts on 12 of our bucket trucks. (For more information on electric vehicles, visit pplelectric.com/ev.)
We continue to look for ways to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.
And we hope you will do the same at your own home, or at your business if you own one. Because, working together, we can all make a difference.
