COVID-19 PECO Restoration Policy
In an effort to ensure all customers have safe, reliable electric service during this current COVID-19 pandemic, PECO will restore service to customers whose service is currently disconnected. No new connection fees or deposits will be required for this restoration. Customers in need of service restoration should call PECO at 1-800-494-4000.
PSE&G Temporarily Suspends Shut-offs
In the interest of protecting public health, PSE&G is temporarily suspending shut-offs of electric or gas service to residential customers for non-payment. This policy is effective immediately.
New Jersey residential customers experiencing financial difficulty as a result of issues related to the coronavirus should contact PSE&G by calling 1-800-357-2262 to enter into a deferred payment arrangement. This policy will be in place through the end of April. PSE&G will evaluate the continued need at that time.
As anticipated, our 211 contact centers have seen significant increases in call volume and teams are working around-the-clock to ensure that callers have accurate and up-to-date information. They have deployed new tools to scale their operations and to leverage remote volunteers. We are also working to ensure that available community resources are up-to-date at 211 in Southeastern PA and Southern New Jersey. We are monitoring PA.211Counts.org and NJ.211Counts.org to understand demand and share data with key stakeholders.
