Delmarva Power's 'Gift of Energy' Program Offers a Way to Help Customers Pay Energy Bills

SALISBURY, Md. - The recent cold weather means that some Delmarva Power customers could be coping with higher than normal energy bills in the weeks ahead. Delmarva Power wants to remind you that its Gift of Energy is now a year-round program that offers a way to help customers who need assistance in paying energy bills.

The program works like this:

• Visit a Delmarva Power office in Wilmington, Newark or Millsboro, Del., and provide a customer service representative with the name and address of the person for whom you're buying the Gift of Energy. You then make a payment via check or credit card on that person's account.

• The program is also accessible online at where a Gift of Energy form is available. Once submitted, a customer service representative will contact the purchaser to complete the transaction.

"We know that this very cold winter weather can lead to high energy bills, making it difficult for some customers to keep their energy accounts up to date," said Felecia Greer, Customer Advocate Director and Executive Sponsor of the Gift of Energy program. "The Gift of Energy program provides a way to help those customers pay their energy bills."

Since the program's inception in 2008, nearly $50,000 in "gifts" have been made to assist customers.
