Grants to Delaware nonprofit organizations, businesses, and local governments in the funding source's service area for projects and activities that promote energy-efficient practices. Funding is intended to support large-scale programs that help low-income residents save money on gas and electricity by increasing efficiency. Eligible programs benefit customers in Delmarva’s Delaware electric and gas service territory.

Applicants receiving a grant will accomplish one or more of the following:

  • Increase the energy efficiency of low-income Delaware households that contribute to statewide electric and gas savings.
  • Engage with and inform low-income Delaware households about the benefits of efficiency and strategies available to them to achieve it.
  • Develop a comprehensive community-based approach to address energy efficiency issues in low-income housing by mobilizing public and private sector resources, including grassroots, community-based, non-profit, and faith-based organizations.
  • Ensure to the greatest extent feasible that job training, employment, contracting, and other economic opportunities generated by this grant will be directed to low-income persons in Delmarva’s service area.

Eligible activities are either tangible or non-tangible and can be shown to save electric or natural gas energy. Any weatherization or pre-weatherization program would need to address areas that current programs don’t address and need to be seen as an additive and not a duplication of services. Delmarva “Gas Only” customers will only be eligible for a program where the principal savings are targeted for natural gas.
