"ATTENTION"- Send Word Now Test Notification (pdf)
For customers with interruptible rate (TSI ) interruptions to service occur primarily to maintain system pressures and to preserve PECO's storage and peaking inventories. The interruptions help to ensure that sufficient supplies and distribution system capacity will be available for PECO's firm residential and small commercial customers.
When an interruption is necessary, you are notified via an electronic module which communicates over a standard phone line. Gas burned when your service has been interrupted is considered unauthorized use or a burn through. Utilizing unauthorized gas could jeopardize the PECO system as well as service to our firm customers.
In order to enforce timely adherence to interruption procedures, unauthorized use surcharges exist within PECO's tariff structure. The current charge is $25.00 per Mcf. Continuously burning through may result in service being shut off and/or removal from the interruptible rate. It is our sincere intent to avoid and prevent surcharges, however this may only be accomplished through a joint effort between PECO and you. The key to a surcharge-free bill is communication. Please use this information to help you to educate your personnel and to provide guidelines to follow in case of an interruption. PECO appreciates your cooperation during any interruptions that may be necessary this year.
