Eligibility & Program Process

Delmarva Power C&I Energy Savings Program Eligibility

To be eligible to participate in the Delmarva Power C&I Energy Savings Program and receive cash incentives, your business must be a commercial, industrial, government, or public/private institutional electric customer with a facility in the Delmarva Power Maryland territory. Requirements may vary by measure-type. The complete terms and conditions can be found in the application.

Note: The maximum annual incentive per individual electric account is $1,000,000. Limited funds are available to support assessments of energy savings opportunities in facilities larger than 100,000 square feet. Contact the Program Office at 866-353-5799 for more details.

Please review the pre-approval details for each incentive. Do not purchase or install equipment before pre-approval is received.

Incentive levels, program rules, and regulations are subject to change.

Application Process

1. Review the page dedicated to the equipment you are interested in. This page will provide you with the most current information for the incentives.

2. If you have questions about the program, contact the Program Office directly at 866-353-5799 or email us at DelmarvaEnergyEfficiency@LMBPS.com If you would like to discuss energy efficient equipment options please contact a Trade Ally (contractor) using the links on this website.

3. Program pre-approval is required for all projects except, in certain situations, emergency installation of HVAC systems. To receive pre-approval, submit a completed and signed application with all supporting documentation as outlined in the Instructions page of the Application Workbook. Supporting documentation may include manufacturer specification sheets; current DLC, Energy Star, CEE or AHRI website product qualification screenshots in PDF form, and an IRS Form W-9 completed for the payment recipient if one has not been submitted previously.

4. A pre-approval notification will be emailed to the customer and Trade Ally confirming pre-approval of the project and identification of incentive dollars reserved for the project. Pre-approval may take up to 10 business days following receipt of all required material by the Program Office. Note that additional time may be necessary for Custom Incentive Applications or projects requiring pre-installation inspections.

5. Purchase and install your energy efficient measures and/or equipment. (Do not purchase equipment before being notified of pre-approval.) Any changes in scope resulting in an incentive of 10% more than pre-approval must be submitted as a new project and obtain pre-approval.

6. After your project is completed, submit all required project documentation:
  • A signed and completed application (with any changes to the pre-approved application).
  • Copies of equipment specification sheets (with changes, if any).
  • Copies of final project invoices showing a detailed breakdown of costs and customer’s signature indicating approval of the costs and confirmation of completed installation.

7. The program staff will review your application and a program representative may visit your facility and inspect the work performed.

8. A confirmation notification will be sent to the key contact once the final approval process has been completed and the check has been issued.
