PPL announces “Empowering Educators” grants program

PPL continues to look for new ways to partner with school districts in the communities where we live and work. We are all concerned about energy conservation and practicing wise use of energy. We frequently hear about the small things we all can do to make a difference as well as the innovative approaches we can take when it comes to energy efficiency and conservation. Through our grant program, students learn more about energy and the environment and how to conserve and protect precious resources for future generations.

The Empowering Educators grant program directs focus toward science, technology, engineering and math projects to encourage action in schools near PPL facilities.  Through these competitive grants, teachers can receive up to $2,000 funding for educational projects that focus on energy issues like renewable energy demonstrations, energy conservation and the greening of schools.
