Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers

On September 12, 2006, the Board of Directors of PPL Corporation ("PPL") elected James H. Miller, PPL’s current President and a director of PPL, to the additional positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, effective October 1, 2006. PPL had previously announced that William F. Hecht, PPL’s current Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, would retire effective October 1, 2006, and that, effective upon Mr. Hecht’s retirement, Mr. Miller would become PPL’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

In connection with his promotion to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Miller’s base salary has been increased from $800,000 to $945,000, and his award targets for purposes of determining his short-term incentive cash award and long-term incentive equity awards will be based on the 2006 targets set by PPL for its chief executive officer, as previously disclosed in PPL’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 23, 2006.

Mr. Miller was already a "named executive officer" (as defined in Item 402(a)(3) of Regulation S-K) of PPL prior to his promotion. The biographical information required under Item 401(b), (d) and (e) of Regulation S-K and the information required under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K is included in Item 13 and the "Executive Officers of the Registrant" section following Item 4 of PPL’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2005 on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). In addition, information concerning Mr. Miller’s compensation arrangements with PPL (prior to the changes referenced above) is provided in PPL’s 2006 Notice of Annual Meeting and Proxy Statement on file with the SEC. This information included in these previous filings with the SEC is incorporated into this Form 8-K by reference.
