A conservation period will be called from 2 to 3 p.m. Oct. 18 for all Delmarva Power customers and for Delmarva Power’s Maryland and Delaware customers participating in Energy Wise Rewards.

Delmarva Power’s Delaware residential and small commercial customers and its Maryland

residential customers can receive a bill credit of $1.25 for every kilowatt hour of reduced

energy use below the customer’s average energy use during specific hours on a peak savings

day. Customers will receive a phone call indicating the hours to reduce energy use. Customers

also can choose to be notified by email or text.

For customers participating in Delmarva Power’s Energy Wise Rewards, a conservation period

will be called from 2 to 3 p.m. This means that Delmarva Power will cycle participants’ air

conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during these hours. Because the air

conditioner fan will continue to run, customers will not notice a temperature change in their

homes, and those who do should experience only a 1-to 3-degree change. It may take up to a

half-hour after the conservation period ends for air conditioners to resume normal operations.

Peak Energy Savings Credit and Energy Wise Rewards are voluntary programs.
