Multiple parts work together to move electricity

PECO’s electric system is made up of many different devices all working together to bring electricity to your home or business.

1

Electricity is generated at one of the many different power plants located throughout the region.

2

Electricity travels from the power plant over high-voltage transmission lines to substations.

3

At a substation, the electricity voltage is lowered so that it can travel over the distribution system.

4

Transformers, both aerial and underground, reduce the electricity voltage even further so it can be accepted by the home or business.

5

Service lines carry electricity to the home or business.
