As one of many member benefits, the Chamber offers an electricity-buying co-op, which offers electricity at discounted rates. What is the co-op? The electric co-op is an exclusive member benefit for Chamber members in good standing who are also Delmarva Power & Light customers, whereby their electric rate is negotiated as a flat fixed rate by an experienced third party on their behalf for a contract period, usually 1-3 years. These negotiated rates are substantially lower than published tariff rates.
Thus far in 2019, the 89 Chamber member businesses that have participated in this program will realize an annualized savings of approximately $32,000.00 based on their prior year’s energy consumption. This equates to an average savings of $359.00 annually – which pays for your annual membership investment in the Chamber, plus some!
