PECO's Energy Saving Process

Your journey to increased energy efficiency starts here. As you progress through these tiers, you’ll discover even more ways to build a healthy bottom line while streamlining your operations.

Basic energy efficiency projects can make a big difference for property owners. PECO can provide a complimentary energy report to show you how to upgrade your equipment and build a healthier bottom line. Then, choose from instant lighting discount s and financial incentive s for:

Energy Benchmarking

A complete energy management approach starts with determining a property’s energy-saving potential through a baseline inventory and facilities audit. The PECO Building Analytics Tool offers an automated system to transfer utility data into ENERGY STAR’s® Portfolio Manager.

Interior Lighting

Upgrade lighting in your building with high-efficiency lights (such as LEDs) to save energy and money.

Exterior Lighting

Improve visibility and safety outside your building(s) by installing LEDs in parking areas.

Lighting & HVAC Controls & Schedules

Use occupancy sensors, dimmers, photosensors, and programmable thermostats to adjust lighting and temperatures automatically in common areas.

Building on your progress, you can increase your energy savings with more advanced energy efficiency upgrades. Take advantage of financial incentive s and instant lighting discount s from PECO to make improvements like these:

Lighting Occupancy Sensors

Save even more on lighting costs by installing sensors that dim LEDs when no one is around and save 15%-30% on lighting costs.

HVAC System Upgrades

Heating and cooling are often the largest expenses in commercial properties. Upgrading to newer, more energy-efficient systems can reduce energy costs and improve tenant comfort with better climate and temperature control.

At this stage, you’re creating a blueprint for maximum energy efficiency. Couple the improvements you made as a Savings Leader with the best financial incentive s from PECO, and consider these possibilities:


In existing buildings, the process of retrocommissioning is one of the most cost-effective methods to reduce energy use. The retrocommissioning process identifies how building operation compares to initial building design and recommends equipment adjustments to improve occupant comfort and to maximize energy savings.

Rooftop HVAC Equipment

Replace older units with variable-speed, economizer-enabled high-efficiency units to improve indoor air quality, control temperatures and humidity, minimize noise, save space, and simplify HVAC repairs.


Enable focused management and continuous improvements by installing energy submeters and a reporting system for your building(s).

Refrigerators and Freezers

Maintain optimal cold storage with energy-efficient equipment in building kitchens and lounges.

Regenerative Drives for Elevator Systems

Capture byproduct heat generated by elevators during use and convert it to energy.
