Stocks in this article: EXC

For more information, help in filling out the application, or questions, customers can call 1-800-34 HELP4 or visit www.peco.com/help.

PECO manages the largest and most comprehensive Universal Services program in the state. In addition to LIHEAP, PECO has many other programs to help customers manage their energy costs and save money. Other assistance programs include:

  • The Customer Assistance Program (CAP): A discounted rate for low-income customers.
  • The Matching Energy Assistance Fund (MEAF): A program funded by voluntary contributions of citizens and matched dollar for dollar by PECO for up to $1,000 in total assistance for those who qualify.
  • Low Income Usage Reduction Program (LIURP): A program that provides year round conservation and weatherization assistance for qualified households.
  • Customer Assistance and Referral Evaluation Services (CARES): A referral and information service designed to assist customers who have temporary personal or financial hardships that prevent the payment of their utility bill.

PECO customers who are not eligible for low-and fixed-income assistance but are having trouble managing their energy costs should also consider taking advantage of other programs including budget billing. Budget billing makes short-term fluctuation in monthly bills much easier to handle by dividing annual energy costs evenly throughout the year.

All customers also can save money on their monthly energy bills by using energy as efficiently as possible. To find low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy and money and to take the PECO Smart Home e-Audit, visit www.PECO.com/SmartIdeas.
