Without question, energy is a topic that is on the minds of just about everyone, in some fashion, these days. Whether it’s driving our cars and trucks, cooling and heating our homes and offices, or simply keeping electricity functioning, energy is pervasive in many aspects of our lives.
And that topical and controversial subject is a long way from the mundane world of disk defragmentation, right?
Many of the world’s largest energy companies are PerfectDisk users. Take PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), which controls or owns about 19,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the United States, sells energy in key U.S. markets, and delivers electricity and natural gas to about 10 million customers in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Kentucky Utilities Company and Louisville Gas and Electric Company, headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, is a diversified energy services company that is a member of the PPL family of companies. It’s one of the U.S.’s lowest-cost energy providers and an industry innovator, operating in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee. It serves 943,000 electricity customers and 321,000 natural gas customers over a transmission and distribution network covering some 27,000 square miles. It provides some of the lowest-cost energy in the U.S. to industrial, commercial and residential customers.
It has continually received best-in-class customer satisfaction ratings of all Midwest-utilities and is highly ranked among all U.S. utilities for efficiency through operational focus. And it runs PerfectDisk on thousands of desktops and laptops to keep them optimized. Of course, we don’t think this is a coincidence. PerfectDisk helps its employees be more efficient and productive, which helps them serve their customers better. All of which helps in the ranking for efficiency, and a direct impact on its bottom line.
With headquarters in the Washington, DC area, Raxco Software has seen numerous power problems this year alone, with outages affecting hundreds of thousands of users.
We hope the local utility companies look to Kentucky for part of the solution to their problems. Yes, the best defrag software won’t fix all of our energy problems here.
But it can be a start.
