Headquartered in Philadelphia, PECO provides service to 1.6 million electric and 497,000 natural gas customers in southeastern Pennsylvania.
In 2012, PECO endured Superstorm Sandy, the worst storm in the
company's history, leaving half of its customers without electric service. PECO assembled a force of 5,000 employees, contractors and support from other utilities to address more than 15,000 repair jobs, respond to more than 1.2 million customer calls, and restore service to 99 percent of the
customers in three days.
Last year, PECO achieved its best year ever in several areas of the
business. A steadfast commitment to safety from every employee resulted in PECO achieving its best ever OSHA recordable rate. The company's continued capital investment in the system resulted in 0.7 electric outages per customer, the most reliable year on record.
