PECO is unleashing multiple programs to try to prepare their customers for increases in their electric rates in 2011.

The PA Public Utilities Commission announced that Pennsylvania utility companies will be increasing the rates for electricity delivery service in 2011. In addition, price caps will be expiring in 2011 in the PECO area - as well as Met-Ed, Penn Electric, and West Penn – which are expected to increase default generation rates by as much as 20%. PECO wants to help customers deal with the increases, so they have several programs including the PECO Smart Home E-Audit, Smart Lighting Discounts, Smart Home Rebates, and Smart Appliance Recycling. They are pretty smart programs. But the smartest way customers will be able to reduce their electricity bill is by looking for an alternative supplier that will offer a lower rate against the PECO price. PECO is going to continue to deliver power to those customers who they are currently delivering to and they'll continue to send invoices out. The decision to choose an alternative electric company will be a simple choice to pay less. There will be more information and rates for alternative providers as we get closer to 2011

Electrolytic bank, used to control alternating current power factor and reduce the cost of electric bills.  AC power entering a property is pulsed at 60 time per second (or 60 hertz). These devises store the electricity between the cycles and supplies the load during the lull period.  This technology is in use in large property with large motors.  It is also know as "capacitor banks" and "power factor correction".

Landlords' duties to repair rental property and to give tenants notice before entering.

To avoid problems with tenants, you should make repairs to rental units as soon as you can. Major problems, such as a plumbing or heating problem, should be handled within 24 hours. But before entering rented premises to make needed repairs, you must provide advance notice to the tenant (usually 24 hours). Without advance notice, in most states a landlord or property manager may enter rented premises only in an emergency, such as a fire or serious water leak.

Landlords' Maintenance Responsibilities Under most state and local laws, you must offer and maintain housing that satisfies basic habitability requirements, such as adequate weatherproofing, available heat, water and electricity, and clean, sanitary, and structurally safe premises. Local building or housing codes typically set specific standards, such as the minimum requirements for light, ventilation, and electrical wiring. Many cities require the installation of smoke detectors in residential units and specify security measures involving locks and keys. Your local building or housing authority, and health or fire department, can provide information on local housing codes (and penalties for violations).

Electric Shocks - Wiring Is the wiring in good condition? Look out for any fraying or if it looks particularly old. Are there enough plug sockets for your needs or would you be running the risk of overloading the existing sockets? Dodgy Plugs? Check that the plugs don't overheat when switched on or don't have yellowy stains. Working Lights? Switch on all overhead lighting to check that it works. Appliances Working? If appliances such as a fridge freezer or oven are included, check that they work.

Electricity and Gas Properly Checked?  By law, all landlords have to carry out annual gas safety inspections with a CORGI registered engineer and provide tenants with a copy of the Gas Safety Certificate. Gas Attack? Gas appliances can carry the risk of carbon monoxide - test for this by ensuring that flames burn yellow or orange rather than blue, and look out yellow or brown stains on or around appliances. Some landlords provide carbon monoxide detectors but this isn't (yet) a legal requirement. A fixed wiring cert is needed for all properties to be let to 4 or more people. Below this, there is no obligation for wiring tests. Any appliances provided by landlords should have a current PAT Test sticker on the plugs or a cert in the property file.
