For Immediate Release
SALISBURY, Md. - Members of Delmarva
Power's Demand Side Management team made a special presentation today to a
group of Environmental Studies students at Salisbury University.
It was the second time this year that
the team members were invited to provide information to students about Delmarva
Power's portfolio of residential and commercial energy efficiency programs.
"We appreciate the university
professors inviting us to come back and provide useful energy efficiency information
to a new group of students," said William Ellis, Delmarva Power Demand Side
Management manager. "We always welcome the opportunity to talk to customers
about how simple steps can make a difference when it comes to saving energy."
He added that Delmarva Power's energy
efficiency programs are designed to support Gov. Martin O'Malley's EmPOWER
Maryland initiative to reduce energy consumption in the state by 15 percent by
Students also watched a Delmarva
Power trade ally perform a walk-through energy assessment and propose energy
efficiency upgrades for the Environmental Studies building.
"We are pleased that Delmarva Power
representatives took the time to make a return visit to talk to our students,"
said Tami Ransom, assistant professor in the Department of Environmental
Studies. "The presentation added some real-world value to the students'
learning experience. Reading a textbook about the importance of energy
efficiency is good, but having Delmarva Power's subject matter experts on hand
to demonstrate actual concepts is even better when it comes to grasping the
significance of energy efficiency."
