New PECO Rebate Program Means Big Energy Savings for PA Customers

Installing a New Gas Heating System Can Net Consumers and Businesses Up To $300!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New PECO $300 Rebate Program for PA Customers in 2009!(EXTON, PA; February 11, 2009) – A new $1.8 million rebate program from PECO Energy could mean lots of extra money in the pockets of Pennsylvania homeowners.

The electric and gas utility recently unveiled the PECO Natural Gas Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, a new initiative to introduce homeowners and businesses in PECO’s Pennsylvania service area to the benefits of efficient, clean-burning natural gas. Under this new program, consumers can receive rebates up to $300 when they replace their current natural gas heating system (or convert from another fuel source) and install an ENERGY STAR®-qualified, high-efficiency natural gas furnace, boiler or residential water heater.

 

Why This Program?

In today’s economic climate, all consumers are looking for ways to use energy more efficiently, reduce monthly utility bills and reduce their carbon footprint…without sacrificing comfort. Natural gas provides many advantages over other home heating fuels: it burns cleaner and more efficiently, is better for the environment and compares quite favorably on cost.

PECO’s new Natural Gas Energy Efficiency Rebate Program makes it easier and provides cash incentives for consumers to make the move to high-efficiency heating today. But the advantages to consumers don’t end there; installing a new ENERGY STAR qualified natural gas furnace, boiler or water heater can save you thousands in fuel costs over the life of your heater.
