Maryland Residential Customers Can Save Big This Weekend

SALISBURY, Md. - Delmarva Power is encouraging its Maryland residential customers to take advantage of its Appliance Rebate Program during the state's tax-free weekend, Feb. 15-17. During this period, customers will not have to pay the state's 6 percent sales tax when they purchase select ENERGY STAR® certified products such as: standard size refrigerators, clothes washers, room air conditioners, dehumidifiers, heat pumps and compact fluorescent light bulbs.

"This is a great opportunity for customers to combine Delmarva Power's rebates with the Shop Maryland Energy tax savings this weekend, and also take advantage of various retailers' Presidents' Day sales," said John Allen, Delmarva Power Regional Vice President.
