PECO Offers Grant Relief to Business Gas Customers

PHILADELPHIA PA – A new PECO Energy program will award one-time grants of $500, applied as credits on customers’ accounts, to small business natural gas users who demonstrate “enduring financial hardship” as a result of rising energy prices and the continued impact of the coronavirus, it said Wednesday (Dec. 1, 2021).

PECO expects to present about $450,000 in grant relief to 900 local companies on a first-come, first-considered basis. The funds can either lower current outstanding balances or provide a credit for future charges.

Eligible applicants can apply now online, here. Businesses must be existing PECO natural gas customers before March 31, 2020 with an account in the name of the business, be on PECO’s Gas Commercial Service rate, have fewer than 25 total employees, and must attest to having experienced a financial hardship due to the pandemic.

PECO said it also provides online energy efficiency savings opportunities for small businesses, here, or call 1-844-424-9728.
