Pennsylvania is on a path toward a renewable energy future, and PECO customers have opportunities to be a part of this shift. While the state progresses with its Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards (AEPS) Act, Pennsylvania residents are better equipped than ever before to go green. Let’s dive into how PECO customers can leverage these opportunities to participate in a greener and more sustainable Pennsylvania.

The Benefits of Going Renewable in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania boasts ambitious goals to mitigate climate change, including plans to lower greenhouse gas emissions by 26% by 2025 compared to 2005 levels. These plans aim not only to reduce the state's carbon output but also to foster a healthier living environment. Urban residents, for instance, in cities like Philadelphia will particularly benefit from a decline in air pollution, leading to a ripple effect of improved public health. Additionally, the growth of renewable energy in Pennsylvania is a harbinger of job opportunities in fields such as solar and wind energy, making the transition to cleaner energy sources desirable from an economic standpoint as well.

PECO’s Renewable Energy Programs

Solar Energy in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's renewable energy landscape is expanding, with solar energy becoming increasingly accessible to its residents. Despite the state's varied climate, a combination of programs and incentives, like the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), are making it financially attractive for homeowners and businesses to adopt solar. 

Wind and Other Renewable Sources in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's commitment to renewable energy extends well beyond solar. The state is harnessing its untapped wind energy resources, utilizing a range of technologies from traditional onshore wind farms to innovative systems that leverage low-speed winds. These efforts are part of Pennsylvania’s broader initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to more sustainable energy solutions.
