NEWARK, Del. (Oct. 21, 2020) – New opportunities to save money and energy are now available for Delmarva Power electric customers in Delaware through the company's newly launched energy efficiency programs. Programs offer LED lighting discounts and cash rebates for recycling old appliances and are now available to help customers take control of their energy use and provide different ways to save money.
"Our new programs are expected to reach more than 200,000 customers across Delaware and can help a customer save up to $10 per month on their energy bill," said Morlon Bell-Izzard, vice president of Customer Operations for Pepco Holdings, which includes Delmarva Power. "Customers can easily take advantage of these programs and see real savings month after month during a time when many across the region are facing financial challenges."
Approved in 2019 by the Delaware Public Service Commission, these energy efficiency programs are designed to last three years. In addition to the LED lighting and appliance programs, the company's behavior-based program began providing personalized energy reports for residential customers in early 2020 to help motivate them to engage in energy savings behavior. The report
compares a customer's energy usage with neighbors in similar homes and provides high-usage alerts and more personalized data to keep customers better informed on their energy usage and how to save energy and money.
Delmarva Power also offers residential, commercial and industrial energy efficiency programs in Maryland and has been nationally recognized five times as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its efforts to help save customers money and energy.
