PECO Installation of Advanced Equipment and Reinforced Electrical Systems

PECO will be updating and installing new equipment to enhance the local electric distribution system in the area.  This project is part of PECO’s System 2020 plan to invest an additional $274 million through 2020 to install advanced equipment and reinforce the electric system, making it more weather resistant and less vulnerable to storm damage.  This investment is in addition to $500 million in ongoing system work completed each year, including replacing and upgrading equipment.

About the Project: 

  • More than $1,000,000 will be invested to enhance the local electric distribution system for you and your neighbors.
  • The majority of this work will occur on area sidewalks and some streets.  Work will occur along Sickle, Caroline, Roberta and Erb Drives, Hillcrest, Edward, Ashbrook and Dougherty Lanes and Crozerville and Lenni Roads.
  • New equipment, including pad-mount transformers could be installed or replaced as necessary.
  • Preliminary design work began in November 2017 and construction is scheduled to begin in late August 2018.
  • Work will occur from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • The project is expected to be completed by September 2018, and work will be performed by a qualified PECO contractor.

Crews may need to temporarily interrupt service to safely complete some of this work.  PECO will work with local residents to ensure they are informed in advance of their activities and any planned interruptions.  PECO will 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.
