For Immediate Release
NEWARK, Del. (November 19, 2018) – This holiday season, Delmarva Power hopes to bring out the spirit of giving in local communities through its Good Neighbor Energy Fund and Gift of Energy programs. From helping someone meet their energy needs to giving a gift that is bright, literally, these programs have you covered.
Good Neighbor Energy Fund
Through the Good Neighbor Energy Fund, customers can donate to local organizations to provide payment assistance to low-income customers struggling to pay their winter energy bills. Donations are made to The Salvation Army and other non-profits in the service area and disbursed to qualified recipients, with much of the funds dispersed to those in need during the winter. In addition to the donations received by customers, Delmarva Power matches $1 for every $3 received, up to $70,000 annually. Since partnering with local non-profits, Delmarva Power has donated more than $367,000 toward the effort. For more information, or to make a contribution, Delaware customers can learn more online at delmarva.com/DEgnef or delmarva.com/MDgnef for Maryland customers.
Gift of Energy
The Gift of Energy provides customers an out-of-the-box way of beating the Black Friday lines and the stress that comes with holiday shopping by giving that friend or family member a credit for their energy bill – all from the comfort of your home, couch, or personal winter wonderland. All that is needed is the customer's name and address or phone number associated with the account. The gift will appear on the recipient's future energy bill as a credit. Gifts can be initiated at Delmarva Power's in-person payment locations or online.
