Programs offer in-store LED lighting discounts at more than 50 locations and $50 for recycling an old appliance
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.”
- The LED lighting in-store discount is now available in more than 50 stores across Delaware, including participating Dollar Tree, Lowe’s, The Home Depot, and Walmart locations. The program helps customers replace outdated light bulbs. For residential customers, Delmarva Power will provide instant in-store discounts on select ENERGY STAR-certified LED bulbs.
- Customers can receive $50 for recycling old, inefficient working appliances, including refrigerators and freezers. Customers can also get an extra $25 if they recycle a working room air conditioner or dehumidifier at the same time. Due to COVID-19, appliances are collected from designated locations outside of customers’ residences, including garages, outbuildings, and porches. This no-contact pickup allows staff to collect and recycle old appliances while the customer remains safely inside of the home. Appliance recycling appointments are now available.
- Delmarva Power residential Delaware customers can learn about these and other energy-saving programs by visiting delmarva.com/waystosave or calling 888-997-9108.
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.
