Our eco-art contest gave local high school students the chance to design the new mural on our storage tank in Wilmington.
Power's storage tank, which helps provide safe, reliable, affordable and clean
natural gas service to northern Delaware, is being repainted! To select a new
mural, we worked with several community partners to launch Paint the Tank, an
innovative eco-art contest for high school students. The contest is now
over and you can read about our winners here. We
expect the new mural to be completed fall 2019.
An Eco-Art Contest
We are committed to protecting sensitive habitats. The property surrounding the storage tank includes nearly 30 acres of natural woods and marshland, which support the neighboring Russell W. Peterson Urban Wildlife Refuge. Artwork submissions captured the importance of sustaining natural ecosystems and preserving our environment for future generations.
Delmarva Power's storage tank is located just south of downtown Wilmington, Del. and is visible from Interstate 95. It provides clean natural gas supply for our 132,000 natural gas customers during heavy winter demand or in the event of emergencies. Natural gas is a safe, affordable and clean fuel. It remains one of the most affordable home-heating fuels and is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, making it better for the environment than other fuel sources, such as propane and heating oil.
