PECO Project

Dear Customer:

At PECO, we are committed to providing safe and reliable energy for our customers and the communities we serve. As part of our work, we will be upgrading and installing new equipment to enhance the local electric infrastructure in Wallace Township.

This project is part of our overall system investment of $6 billion during the next five years to inspect equipment, complete targeted system enhancements and corrective maintenance, invest in new equipment, and perform vegetation management work. This also includes PECO’s Reliability & Resiliency Plan, which will help to prevent customer outages, modernize the electric grid, reduce the impact of extreme weather on electric infrastructure, and support the adoption of clean energy resources. 

About the Project:

· We will be upgrading and installing new, innovative equipment, including new poles and tree-resistant aerial wires to provide you with safe and reliable service and meet the evolving needs of our customers.

· In addition, advanced devices will be installed that can stop the flow of electricity on the line if a problem occurs and automatically restore electricity where possible.

· As part of this work, we will begin an enhanced vegetation management program across the region to reduce the number of outages caused by trees and other vegetation.

· All work will be performed by PECO crews and qualified PECO contractors.

Vegetation Management:

· PECO will invest an additional $320 million on vegetation management across approximately 600 miles of aerial electric lines during the next 10 years.

· This will include tree trimming and tree removals and may involve rear property tree trimming and removals.

· We will notify customers if any tree work must occur on their property and will work directly with those customers to develop a plan.

· PECO works with certified arborists and professional foresters and adheres to national ANSI A300 standards when managing tree trimming and removal.


· Tree trimming work is scheduled to begin in January and work on electrical equipment, including poles and wires, is scheduled to start once tree trimming work is complete.

· The project is expected to be completed in late 2023.

· Work will occur along streets and sidewalks of Sycamore Mills Rd between Ridley Creek Rd and West Rose Tree Rd.

Crews may need to temporarily interrupt electric service to safely complete some of this work. We will work with customers to ensure they are informed in advance of our activities and any planned interruptions. To ensure you receive all outage updates, please confirm that your phone number is accurate in our system through MyAccount at or by calling PECO at 1-800-494-4000.

We will also 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.

If you have any questions regarding the details of this project and how it may impact you, please contact Mike Herman, Customer Service Liaison, at


William Patterer,

Director, Regional Electrical Operations, PECO
