For customers with interruptible rate (TSI or TCS), interruptions to service territory 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. Burning unauthorized use gas could jeopardize the PECO system as well as service to our firm customers. When an interruption is necessary, you are notified via text, email, and phone call via the contacts that you’ve chosen to provide to us in the LGCN portal (click on the icon above on this page & enter your account number as ID). In addition, your supplier is notified of the interruption and we update both the electronic bulletin board (EBB) as well as the Gas Hotline (1-800-PECO-GAS). However, as a well-educated shopping customer, you are encouraged to review your account regularly and to reach out to your PECO Account Manger when forecasted average temperatures drop below freezing or if supply is restricted and pricing has escalated. In order to enforce timely adherence to interruption procedures, unauthorized use surcharges exist within PECO’s tariff structure. The current charge is $25 per mcf from April 1 to Oct 31 and $75 per mcf from November 1 to March 31. Please note that the revenue from unauthorized use penalties is returned in full to all other purchased gas cost customers. Also note that continuously burning through may result in your service being shut off and/or removal from the interruptible rate. It is our sincere intent to avoid and prevent these surcharges so we ask that you comply with all requests to interrupt and switch to an alternate fuel when notified.
