PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — PECO is raising its rates, and the hike is set to hit in the next few days. Customers can also expect to get a little something back.

PECO recently released a statement telling customers that they can expect to start paying more for their services starting in January. They said they are implementing a fee increase of about 1 percent.

They also say on January's bill customers can expect to see a one-time credit of $35 added to their accounts, courtesy of the Jobs Act.

PECO says these charges and changes will help them provide maintenance, and give customers a better product.
