Maryland Customers Have Unique Opportunity to Receive Home Energy Check-up
SALISBURY , Md. - Delmarva Power will host “Community Energy Awareness Day” from noon to 3 p.m., Saturday, March 19, at Salisbury Elks Lodge #817, located at 401 Churchill Avenue in Salisbury, Md. The utility’s Maryland customers will receive information on how to participate in the company’s Quick Home Energy Check-up program.
A Quick Home Energy Check-up is a walk-through home energy inspection conducted by a qualified surveyor who will identify ways to save energy and provide information on other programs that improve energy efficiency. The Quick Home Energy Check-up is a $40 value. This fee will be waived if the surveyor is allowed to install - at no cost to the customer - at least three recommended energy-saving products during the inspection, such as: compact fluorescent light bulbs, electric water heater tank and pipe wraps, low-flow showerheads, and kitchen faucet or bath aerators.
“Maryland customers who sign up during ‘Community Energy Awareness Day’ can schedule a Quick Home Energy Check-up for that same day or a future date,” said Charles Driggs, Delmarva Power’s Energy Program Manager. “A Quick Home Energy Check-up provides our customers with an opportunity to reduce their energy usage which means they may see lower electric bills.”
“This is our second such activity on Maryland’s Eastern Shore,” said Driggs. “About 50 customers attended a similar event in Cambridge a few weeks ago and many signed up for the home inspection. Because of sign-ups at that event and the subsequent canvassing of the neighborhood in the following week, a total of 100 customers received Quick Home Energy Check-ups.”
“Community Energy Awareness Day” will also include refreshments, giveaway items and information on Delmarva Power’s entire menu of residential energy efficiency programs.
Delmarva Power plans to conduct similar energy efficiency events in other Maryland towns this year.
