PECO ENERGY ISSUING APPEAL TO CUSTOMERS WITHOUT SERVICE

 PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- With frigid weather forecast for this weekend, PECO Energy Company (NYSE: PE) wants all of its customers, those who use electricity in Philadelphia, and electricity and natural gas in the suburbs, to have service.
 The company is again issuing an appeal to customers who have had their service terminated due to lack of payment, to contact the company so arrangements can be made for their service to be restored.
 If you or someone you know is without energy service, please contact PECO Energy immediately at the number listed on your bill during normal business hours, or call 1-800-841-4141 after hours.
 PECO Energy estimates that 2,200 of its 1.5 million customers are currently


without service due to non-payment. The company has made repeated but unsuccessful attempts to contact these customers and is now making an appeal to them -- as well as to their friends, neighbors and relatives -- to contact the company now to have service restored before extremely cold weather hits the area this weekend.
 PECO Energy cautions its customers against using supplemental heating sources. A kitchen stove should not be used as supplementary heat, nor should candles be used for a light source. Kerosene and electric space heaters should only be used under constant supervision, located away from furniture, drapes or any other combustible material. PECO Energy encourages all customers to make sure to put fresh batteries in their smoke detectors.
 PECO Energy wants all of its customers to have service during these frigid days of winter.
