Customer Assistance Program (CAP)

​PECO's Customer Assistance Program (CAP) provides a monthly credit for eligible low income customers. The credit is based on the customer’s total household gross income and energy usage.

PECO calculates a customer’s annual credit using the following information:

  • Monthly gross household income - Federal Poverty Level
  • Annual energy usage – The amount of energy used at the property over the past 12 months
  • Energy Burden – The percentage of household income that should go towards energy bills

The annual credit ​is then divided across 12 months and applied to a CAP customer’s bill each month. Because energy usage changes due to the impact of weather, a larger credit will be applied during months when customers normally use more energy.​
