What does PECO say?
PECO claims the company sees the need for clean electricity, but that the Power Local Green Jobs demand is too large and too rapid. However, the science is very clear about the enormous damages and loss of life that will result from delay. PECO cannot be permitted to inflict this damage.
PECO must commit to a strategy measured against objective benchmarks. This commitment should be in line with the science in terms of minimizing climate destruction, and must prioritize economic benefits for the people hurt most by climate damages rather than lining Exelon’s shareholder pockets. We believe 20% local solar by 2025 is the first step.
