Philadelphia Area has a Green Partner in PECO.

Real Estate Agent

The southeastern PA region's largest energy services provider, PECO, has teamed up with ENERGY STAR ® to provide consumers with energy saving tools.  PECO serves over 1.6 million electric customers and 485,000 gas customers.

This is a great example of responsible corporate behavior - a company acting in the best interests of their customers, not just the company's bottom line profit. If PECO customers follow the guidelines, they will dramatically lower their energy consumption.  Bravo, PECO!

Visit for energy saving tips and green information.


Consumers can learn about all sorts of energy saving (and money-saving!) tips by using an interactive "home tour" that features tips for every room of the house, and a link to EnergyStar's Consumer Pledge - a great way for individuals to help fight global warming.

This is not the only way PECO is becoming more eco-friendly.

  Their recent initiatives total more than $15 million in investments, including:

  • PECO's first "green building" in West Chester, PA.
  • Installation of a "green roof"
  • Multiple upgrades to company buildings to secure LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
  • Customer support for energy efficiency efforts.
  • EasySave Energy Kits - for $20, consumers can purchase an EasySave Energy Kit that includes 3 Compact Florescent light bulbs, an LED nightlight, and a massaging showerhead and a kitchen faucet sprayer head, and several other eco-friendly goodies. (for $25 the showerhead is hand-held.)

I encourage everyone to take advantage of PECO's energy saving programs.

Good to hear. Energy companies are going to have a huge impact on green and renewable energy. They can help the cause or they can hinder the cause by placing obstacles for renewables.

Rich - I will definitely take a gander.  I've tried to increasingly concentrate my efforts on implementing these types of energy saving opportunities myself.  I'll check out their site, thanks.

This is incredible.  I hope we see more of this all across the country.  I don't know exacting what is happening in New Hampshire.  I will have to check this out.

Pete -- I agree.  The companies that produce and distribute energy are a major player when it comes to conservation efforts.

Jason -- This is definately a case where one person can make a difference.  Now, turn off your computer, and save some energy...  ;-)

Joan -- Thanks.  Please be sure to report back what you find out.
