For Immediate Release
NEWARK, Del. - Some Delmarva Power customers may have difficulty paying their monthly energy bills this holiday season because of the sluggish economy. To help those less-fortunate customers, Delmarva Power offers a Gift of Energy program.
Gift of Energy payments can be made in person, by check or credit card, at one of the company's participating Delaware Walk-In offices. Additionally, the company offers a mail-in payment option on fliers it is distributing to social service agencies and community-based shelters located throughout its service territory. The program, which is available to both Maryland and Delaware customers, launches today and runs through January 15, 2011.
The program works like this:
· Visit a Delmarva Power Walk-In Office in Delaware;
· Provide customer service with the name and address of the person for whom you're buying the Gift of Energy;
· Make a payment on that person's account; and
· Receive a FREE holiday greeting card to give to that special someone, compliments of Delmarva Power.
