Grow Your Business in 2015 with a Small Business Loan

Kathy Henderson, Director of Economic Development  

FROM THE DESK OF KATHY HENDERSON,
Director of Carbon County Economic Development


Small Businesses are the backbone of our economy.  I’m sure you have heard that statement before. But have you ever stopped to think about the large corporations whose goods and services you use every day and wonder how they got to be where they are today?

We all know the story of Apple. How thirty-six years ago, Steve Jobs, a young computer programmer working out of his parents’ garage, was looking for investors so he could create the world’s most user-friendly personal computer. John Hines, who managed an Illinois-based venture capital fund licensed and supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration, saw the potential. He invested half a million dollars in the promising start-up. Two years later the company went public and the venture capital fund sold its stake for $44 million. And the rest, as they say, is history. Read More

With winter at the doorstep, PPL Electric Utilities has several programs to help its income-eligible customers pay their bills, maintain uninterrupted service and stay warm this season.

3 Steps to Energy Saving This Winter



Courtesy of Guest Blogger, Paul Canevari, Regional Affairs Director, PPL Corporation

 

 

Use energy wisely, shop for electricity and shop smart

Last winter, many PPL Electric Utilities customers on variable-rate plans for their generation supply faced high bills, resulting from a combination of high usage during the prolonged cold weather and volatile market prices.

Fall is a traditionally a time to prepare for the long, cold months ahead. Before the cold of winter and heating bills hit, there’s also no better time to take steps to keep your electric bill low.

 

PPL Electric Utilities suggests a three-step plan to help customers avoid paying more than they have to for electricity:

 

Use energy wisely:  PPL Electric Utilities has many tips on its website at www.pplelectric.com. They include turning the thermostat down, if you can. Heating accounts for more than 30 percent of an average home’s energy bill. Turning the thermostat down about 1 degree saves about 2 percent on your heating bill, while turning it down 5 degrees saves about 10 percent. Also, seal your house against drafts, and have your ductwork checked for air leaks.
