PPL Operation Help/E-Power Trainings

PPL Operation Help

Pocono Alliance is now the PPL Operation Help provider for Monroe County. Operation Help pays energy bills for PPL customers who, as a result of hardships and limited income, have difficulty paying their energy bills. The program is supported by donations from customers, company employees and PPL Electric Utilities.

These funds are used to pay for any type of home heating and are available to current PPL customers in Monroe County that meet income guidelines.

Operation Help in Monroe County is currently out of funds for the 1st quarter. The 2nd round of funding will begin at the end of April 2016. Applications will be accepted beginning April 18th.
