PECO Supports Solar Power
Ted Dorand, PECO External Affairs Manager for Bucks County, was a Special Guest speaker at the April 19, 2022, meeting of the Newtown Economic Development Committee.
In this audio clip, Mr. Dorand speaks about solar power in response to a question from Matt Peters, the Chair of the EDC, about installing solar panels in parking lots and/or other open spaces.
Mr. Dorand also explains how PECO works with the PA Department of Environment Protection regarding the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant (AFIG) Program, which provides funding to help municipalities replace older gasoline- or diesel-fueled vehicles with electric fueled vehicles. It also funds installation of electric fueling equipment for these vehicles. PECO has incentive programs around “make ready” costs.
