DELAWARE ENERGY WISE REWARDS™ PROGRAM
Energy Wise Rewards is a tool for Delaware customers to take more control over your energy use, save money on your energy costs, and take a big step towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
How does Energy Wise Rewards work?
During the peak electricity demand times in the summer, generally June through September, we’ll automatically cycle off and on participating central air conditioners and heat pumps to help reduce the region’s demand for electricity. These Energy Wise Rewards conservation periods occur on Peak Savings Days. This automatic reduction of your air conditioner energy use makes it easy for you to receive credits off your bill through the Peak Energy Savings Credit.
You’ll receive a one-time Installation Credit of up to $80 off your bill and your choice of an energy-saving device at no charge! Enroll now
There are typically five Peak Savings Days a summer.
There are no hidden costs or fees, and the program is completely voluntary. Because your participation is so important, we are offering this energy-saving program at no charge, complete with valuable incentives. Joining is a choice that not only benefits you personally, but benefits your community and environment as well.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Energy Wise Rewards works by cycling off and on your central air conditioner or heat pump over short intervals (conservation periods) on selected summer days (called Peak Savings Days).
This automatic energy reduction works hand-in-hand with the Peak Energy Savings Credit and helps you receive $1.25 for every kWh you reduce your electricity use below your personal energy baseline. Learn more about the Peak Energy Savings Credit.
When Energy Wise Rewards conservation periods occur, air continues to be circulated throughout your home by the air conditioner fan. The cycling option you choose determines how long your air conditioner compressor will rest during each Energy Wise Rewards conservation period.
Energy Wise Rewards is only activated during times of peak electricity demand, generally June through September. Expect approximately five Peak Savings Days a summer.
