AKRON, Ohio,  Jan. 17, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- PECO residents on a residential
heating (RH) rate whose generation discount was eliminated on  January 1, 2013,
still have the opportunity to save money on their electric bills by enrolling
with FirstEnergy Solutions and securing a low generation price when they use the
most electricity.   

Residents enrolling in this seasonal pricing offer receive  7.23 cents  per
kilowatt-hour (kWh) from October through March, and  7.39 cents  per kWh from
April through September.  Based on PECO's current generation rate, residents can
save up to an estimated  $790  through the end of the 36-month agreement.  If
PECO's rate increases to  9.59 cents  per kWh on  April 1, as estimated on
PAPowerSwitch.com, the amount of savings through this program will increase.
