How can I get help paying my EXTREMELY large electric bill in Pa?

My husband just started a new job. We're both in our mid 20's. We have 2 infants and a boat load of debt to pay off plus the regular bills. We're in so much money trouble, it's scary. We need help with our PECO (electric) bill so bad. They're going to shut off our electricity if we don't pay it in full, in 20 days time. With 2 babies to take care of, we can't afford to have no electric or gas. Any suggestions? (and please don't say something cute like get a job or something. i'm asking for help, not sarcasm.)
