Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

As previously disclosed, on February 23, 2022, the Rhode Island Division of Public Utilities and Carriers (the "Division"), in response to an application filed by PPL Corporation (the "Company"), PPL Rhode Island Holdings, LLC, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company ("PPL Rhode Island"), The Narragansett Electric Company ("Narragansett") and National Grid USA, issued an order authorizing, as consistent with the public interest, the disposition of jurisdictional facilities that will result in PPL Rhode Island acquiring 100% of the outstanding shares of common stock of Narragansett (the "Transaction"), as contemplated by that certain Share Purchase Agreement, dated as of March 17, 2021 (as supplemented and amended), by and among PPL Energy Holdings, LLC, PPL Rhode Island (as successor by assignment from PPL Energy Holdings, LLC), National Grid USA, and, solely with respect to certain provisions thereof, the Company.

On April 1, 2022, the Rhode Island Superior Court (the "Superior Court") stayed the Division's order pending the Superior Court's decision on the Attorney General of Rhode Island's appeal of the Division's order. Oral arguments with respect to such appeal were scheduled for April 12, 2022 before the Superior Court.

On April 11, 2022, the Superior Court granted the request of the Company, PPL Rhode Island and the Attorney General of Rhode Island and issued an order rescheduling the oral arguments with respect to such appeal for April 26, 2022 to allow time for the parties to pursue settlement discussions. There can be no assurances that a settlement will be reached by the parties. The Company remains confident that the Division correctly authorized the Transaction.
