PECO Receives Energy Star Partner Of The Year - Sustained Excellence Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has presented Exelon’s energy companies, including  PECO, with the Energy Star Partner of the Year: Sustained Excellence Award.
The Sustained Excellence Award is given to companies that demonstrate exceptional leadership for more than three years in the Energy Star program, while committing to superior energy efficiency achievements.
“An essential part of powering a cleaner and brighter future for our customers is giving them the tools to be more efficient energy consumers,” said Exelon CEO Christopher M. Crane. “Our six electric and gas companies do this every day through a suite of programs that help customers save energy and money.”
Among PECO’s 2017 accomplishments are--
-- Saving its customers more than 2.7 million megawatt hours through Energy Star-related program offerings over the past eight years.
-- Promoting the sale of more than 1.8 million Energy Star certified LED bulbs and saving 76 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy through instant discounts on qualifying bulbs and fixtures at the point of sale.
-- Building an informed trade ally network to educate consumers during critical sales opportunities, with nearly 10,000 certified appliances rebated by the program for estimated annual savings of 6,698,000 kWh.
-- Paying incentives on more than 270 Energy Star certified homes, a 92 percent increase since 2016, while saving more than 1,000,000 kWh.
-- Increasing the number of participating builder partners to 17, a 112 percent increase since 2016, and re-designing the program to include multifamily units.
-- Leveraging the Energy Star Flip Your Fridge promotion to cross market its recycling and refrigerator incentives and prominently display the Energy Star promotional mark. PECO’s appliance initiative led to the recycling of more than 12,000 older refrigerators, freezers and room air conditioners.
Through their energy efficiency programs across all its energy companies, Exelon’s electric customers saved more than 19.2 million megawatt hours of energy in 2017, enough to power to approximately 1 million average American homes for one year. Customers also avoided almost 8.7 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
“The 2018 Energy Star Partners of the Year have demonstrated real leadership, showing how American families and businesses can save energy, save money, and reduce air emissions,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA assistant administrator for Air and Radiation.
PECO was recognized for energy efficiency nine times by EPA.
