What are the different PPL commercial and industrial rates?

Demand – What is it? Businesses have electric meters that measure both demand for electricity in kilowatts (KW) and electricity use in kilowatt-hours (KWH). Demand is the amount of electricity your business requires at a given moment. All business customers have a demand component of their electric bill. The demand charge is based on your peak demand as measured over a 15-minute period. For our general service rates, demand charges make up 20 percent to 40 percent of a typical monthly bill. Your demand can be controlled through the use of technology. Since demand is such a high component of your electric bill, it is worth exploring these options

What is a kilowatt-hour?
A kilowatt-hour is a measure of electricity use equal to 1,000 watts used for one hour. The electric meter measures how many kilowatt-hours you use. Electricity use is one component of your electric bill.
