To enhance the online experience for our customers, we are making system upgrades on Saturday, June 29, from 5 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Customers will be unable to submit payments online or by phone or log into their My Account or through the PECO App during this time. We appreciate your patience as we make these upgrades. Thank you.
LIHEAP is a federal program that provides assistance to individuals who are having trouble paying their electric, natural gas or other heating bills. The LIHEAP program provides cash and crisis assistance by a direct payment to a vendor, such as a utility like PECO. LIHEAP also has money allocated for emergencies including reinstating service that has been shut-off for non-payment, fuel payments, and repairing leaking pipes and broken furnaces.
Homeowners, renters, roomers and subsidized housing tenants may be eligible. Last year LIHEAP helped over 40,000 PECO customers totaling more than $16 million in assistance.
