Helping PECO customers manage
changing times

Beginning January 1, 2011, the prices PECO and our customers pay for electricity will be based on electric market pricing. Gas and electricity will cost customers more. At the same time, PECO’s operational costs have increased.
We want to help you manage these changes. This Web site will help keep you informed, answer questions and offer strategies to help save or offset much of the increase. Please look around. If you can’t find the answer here, let us know and we promise to find it for you.

PECO Reaches Gas and Electric Delivery Rate Case Settlements
Settlements provide necessary funds for reliable electric & natural gas service, customer support and low-income assistance

PECO today filed joint settlement petitions for consideration by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PAPUC) that reflect agreements reached with all interested groups on the increases in natural gas and electric delivery charges beginning Jan. 1, 2011.

“We are pleased to have worked cooperatively with all involved to reach these agreements,” said Denis O’Brien, PECO president and CEO.  “These settlements will help us continue to provide reliable gas and electric service and quality customer care while also managing the impact of these changes to our customers.”

The settlement reflects a $20 million overall increase in natural gas delivery rates and a $225 million increase in electric delivery rates.  Specifically, with these increases PECO will:

  • Continue to invest in our electric and natural gas delivery systems – replacing equipment, upgrading infrastructure and investing in new technology.  We plan to invest about $1.7 billion in our electric delivery system and $380 million in our natural gas delivery system during the next 5 years – ensuring reliable service to customers and employing thousands of people in our regional workforce.
  • Continue to improve customer service, and expand our natural gas energy efficiency programs.
  • Increase assistance to low-income customers by providing more tailored assistance programs and limiting total program costs.
