PPL Electric Customer Service Reviews

PPL Electric Utilities has won 15 J.D. Power & Associates awards for customer satisfaction, appears to have mixed reviews from customers who have left online reviews about their experience with the utility company (based on reviews left on websites including Yelp, consumeraffairs.com, and the Better Business Bureau). To some extent, this is normal: most customers tend to publish online reviews only when they are unhappy with the service they've received. As of October 2015, PPL Electric had a B rating from the Better Business Bureau, based on its responsiveness to customer complaints filed against it, and its relative size and length of time that it has been in business. Most customer complaints appeared to be focused on responses to power outages.
