Non-profit and faith-based organizations are the ambassadors and stewards of assisting their communities. Investing in energy-efficient equipment can help you further your mission by lowering energy use and keeping operational costs down—freeing up dollars that can be directed towards outreach and other important projects.1

Plus, energy efficiency can help create a more comfortable environment for employees, volunteers and members of your organization, as well as reduce your environmental impact. Non-Profit and Faith-Based Fact Sheet PDF

Earn cash incentives

Non-profits and faith-based organizations can take advantage of Delmarva Power’s standard incentives for installing new, energy-efficient equipment. Cash incentives are available to customers planning unique equipment and system upgrades and industrial process improvements. If you are planning energy-saving improvements that are not eligible for standard incentives, you may be eligible for custom incentives.

We also offer enhanced incentives to small businesses, non-profits, faith-based organizations and institutional customers that have a monthly demand of 60 kW or less over a twelve month period. These enhanced incentives are available to customers once the Quick Energy Check-Up provided by the program has been completed. Many of the eligible Small Business Program incentives cover up to 80% of the program-estimated installed cost.
