PPL Electric Utilities is preparing for potential power outages resulting from a predicted winter storm and is urging its customers to do the same.

All PPL employees — including hundreds of line workers, electricians and other skilled technicians — are ready to respond when needed.

PPL has secured 250 additional line workers from its sister companies in Kentucky, and from South Carolina, to help restore power to customers.

"We will work around the clock until all customers are restored to power," said Dave Bonenberger, PPL vice president — distribution operations. "We have been working for years to strengthen our system to reduce the number of outages in storms, and to help us restore power more quickly."
