PHILADELPHIA – - PHILADELPHIA – PECO plans to invest more than $30 million to build a new electric distribution substation to serve customers in North Philadelphia. The distribution substation will be constructed adjacent to the companyÂ’s existing transmission substation and will provide electric service for customers throughout this growing area.

The project will expand PECOÂ’s electric system by initially creating five new 13-kilovolt kV circuits to ensure and enhance reliability for customers and also support future growth in the areas around North Philadelphia and Temple University. Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year and be completed by 2015.
