Over the last year and a half, our homes have become more than a roof over our heads. In addition to our living space, our homes have shifted to a multi-purpose function, now serving as an office, a classroom and a place to unwind at the end of a long day.
At PECO, we understand the need for safe and reliable utility service every day. It’s with this knowledge that we continue to expand our energy efficiency programs in order to power the region with clean energy and the necessary tools to help customers save energy and money.
This week, we celebrated the completion of Dauphin House, a new environmentally friendly senior living complex located in North Philadelphia. This brand-new ENERGY STAR-certified complex was designed to meet the rigorous requirements for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Since the inception of PECO’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation program, we’ve had the great honor to partner with area builders to develop over 4,600 environmentally friendly homes. As part of the program, PECO has distributed more than $350 million in energy efficiency rebates and incentives, helping our customers save energy and money, all while reducing their carbon footprint.
In addition to helping customers reduce energy consumption and lessening their environmental impact, projects much like Dauphin House are intended to help address very underserved needs for secure and affordable senior housing throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. This work supports PECO’s Path to Clean journey, building on our commitment to protect and preserve the environment and combat climate change. Empowering customers to embrace clean energy is an extremely important aspect of this company-wide program. Not only does this project demonstrate our contributions to our beloved community, but it serves as a reminder of our long-term mission to continue to power a clean and brighter future for our customers and communities.
