Section 1 - Registrant's Business and Operations
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Section 2 - Financial Information
Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

On June 22, 2005, PPL Electric Utilities Corporation (“PPL Electric”) entered into a $200 million Amended and Restated Five-Year Credit Agreement with Wachovia Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent and an Issuing Lender, and the other Lenders party thereto from time to time (the “Credit Agreement”). Immediately prior to the effectiveness of the amendment and restatement of the credit agreement, the term of the credit facility, which was due to expire in 2009, had been extended by one year to 2010.

The Credit Agreement allows for borrowings at LIBOR-based rates plus a spread, depending upon PPL Electric’s senior secured long-term debt rating. The primary purpose of the credit facility is to serve as a credit backstop for PPL Electric’s commercial paper program. In addition, PPL Electric may request the lenders under the Credit Agreement to issue letters of credit for general corporate purposes, which issuances reduce available borrowing capacity. PPL Electric will pay customary commitment and letter of credit issuance fees under the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement contains a financial covenant requiring PPL Electric’s debt to total capitalization to not exceed 70% (as calculated pursuant to the Credit Agreement), and various other covenants that are standard for similar credit agreements. Failure to meet the covenants beyond applicable grace periods and certain other events, including a change of control (as defined in the Credit Agreement), could result in acceleration of due dates of any borrowings and/or termination of the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement also contains certain standard representations and warranties that must be made for PPL Electric to borrow or to cause the lenders to issue letters of credit.


        Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
