Rebates & Credits in PA
PECO offers rebates and credits when you install natural gas service at your home.
- Get up to $500 with PECO Smart Natural Gas Rebates.
- $200 PECO Smart Natural Gas Conversion rebate when you convert to natural gas heating from another heating fuel
- $300 PECO Smart Gas Efficiency Upgrade for ENERGY STAR-qualified heating equipment
Rebates are valid for PECO natural gas customers in Southern Chester County. For a conversion rebate, customers must replace their current oil, propane or electric heating systems with a new, qualified natural gas heating system.
Additionally, the new natural gas system must be your residence’s sole or primary source of heat.
To enjoy the benefits of natural gas, we will need to determine if you are near a natural gas main and require a natural gas service line.
If you do not already have a natural gas service line, you may be able to have one installed if natural gas is available in your area. A cost may be associated with installing a service line on your property. However, most homes without a natural gas service line are eligible for credits from PECO toward the installation costs.
In October 2015, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PAPUC) approved PECO’s plan to implement initiatives that provide more incentives to customers interested in switching to natural gas service. Customers will now receive a larger credit based on their natural gas usage.
Make the switch today. Apply online or call 1-866-685-5665 (Monday – Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM) to get started.
