COATESVILLE VA MEDICAL CENTER TO DEMONSTRATE NEW NATURAL GAS VEHICLES AND ON-SITE DISPENSING STATION FRIDAY

 COATESVILLE VA MEDICAL CENTER TO DEMONSTRATE
 NEW NATURAL GAS VEHICLES AND ON-SITE DISPENSING STATION FRIDAY
 The Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Coatesville has become Philadelphia Electric Company's (NYSE: PE) (PECO) first natural gas vehicle customer in Chester County.
 As part of a General Services Administration initiative toward alternative-fueled vehicles, the VA Medical Center has acquired four dedicated natural gas vehicles, 1992 GMC Sierra pickup trucks. In addition, Philadelphia Electric installed a FuelMaker compressor- dispenser for vehicle refueling on-site.
 The Coatesville facility becomes the first VA center in the nation to use alternative-fueled vehicles.
 PECO anticipates completion of its fourth natural gas fast-fill refueling station in Chester County early next year, nearby the company's division headquarters on North Caln Road in Coatesville. The others are located in Warminster, Plymouth and Berwyn.
 There are approximately 115 natural gas vehicles powered by PECO natural gas in the Philadelphia region. The number of NGV users is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years under the requirements set forth by the federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.
 The VA Medical Center will host an informal demonstration of the FuelMaker refueling and discuss its early experiences with natural gas vehicles at 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 23. The demonstration will be held outside Building 71 on the Medical Center complex, which is located on Black Horse Hill Road.
 Among those in attendance will be: Stephen Rafetto, fleet manager, General Services Administration; Jeff Sage and Witt Middleton, VA Engineering, and Earl Brown, VA Public Affairs; and PECO staff Jeff Guistwhite, Marketing, Jack Flanagan, Customer Accounts, and Phil Brown, Transportation.
 CONTACT: Michael Wood of Philadelphia Electric, 215-841-4125.
