Customer Assistance Program (CAP)

​PECO's Customer Assistance Program (CAP) can give you a monthly credit on your PECO bill. The credit is based on your household's gross income and energy use.

Your monthly CAP credit is based on the following information:

  • Monthly gross household income – Federal Poverty Level (FPL)
  • Annual energy usage – The amount of energy you used in the past 12 months.
  • Energy burden – The percentage of household income that goes to energy costs.

PECO uses these three pieces of information to determine your monthly CAP credit. That credit amount is applied to a CAP customer's PECO bill each month. Energy usage can change due to the weather. So, CAP customers will receive a larger credit during months they use more energy.
