At PECO, we are committed to providing safe and reliable energy for our customers and the communities we serve. As part of that commitment, we regularly monitor our system's performance to identify any potential improvements.

We recently inspected electrical equipment in your area to identify potential issues before an outage occurs. As a result of those proactive inspections, we will be installing equipment in your neighborhood to enhance your service reliability.

About the Project:

New aerial devices called reclosers will be installed. When a problem occurs, like a fallen tree limb, lightning strike, or vehicle accident, the recloser stops the flow of electricity on the line and automatically restores power where possible, thus minimizing the impact to our customers.

* We will replace 1 pole.
* PECO equipment will be transferred from the old pole to the new pole.
* We will install surge arresters at 2 locations.
* Work will occur on New Falls Rd. between Vermillion and Orchard Dr.
* Work is scheduled from 2/20/23 to 2/22/23.
* Work will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
* Work will be performed by a PECO crew.

Crews may need to temporarily interrupt service to safely complete some of this work. We will work with local residents to ensure they are informed in advance of our activities and any planned interruptions. To ensure that you receive all outage updates, please confirm that your phone number is accurate in our system through MyAccount at or by calling 1-800-494-4000.

We will also work closely with local officials to minimize the impact on traffic and pedestrians whenever possible. Access for services such as trash removal, student transportation and emergency vehicles will be maintained during construction.
