Energize Delaware is looking for organizations, both nonprofit and for-profit, with ideas for energy-saving programs for Delmarva Power’s low-income customers — and will award orgs with the best ideas up to a million dollars to implement them.
The Empowerment Grant Program (EPG) from Energize Delaware, the public brand of the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility, a nonprofit created by the State of Delaware, is now accepting applications. The first grants are expected to be awarded in the spring of 2020.
For the first round, applications are being accepted for large-scale grants of up to $1 million, making the round a good time for smaller orgs to observe the process before applications for the community-scale grants of up to $100,000 open in the spring.
Grants will be awarded to organizations located in the Delmarva Power service area that propose new ways to provide improved efficiency, reliability and energy-saving programs for Delmarva Power customers whose households earn 60% or less of the state’s median income.
Each EPG cycle will include resources for orgs interested in applying, including workshops, information and technical assistance. Workshops will be held on Feb. 6 in Kent County, Feb. 11 in New Castle County and Feb. 13 in Sussex County; application resources are also available online.
The deadline for application is April 3.-30-
