PECO’s electric system is made up of many different devices all working together to bring electricity to your home or business.
Electricity is generated at one of the many different power plants located throughout the region.
Electricity travels from the power plant over high-voltage transmission lines to substations.
At a substation, the electricity voltage is lowered so that it can travel over the distribution system.
Transformers, both aerial and underground, reduce the electricity voltage even further so it can be accepted by the home or business.
Service lines carry electricity to the home or business.
