Delmarva Power Makes Energy Efficiency Presentation

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 2015.

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."
