DE residents learn ways to save money on energy bills
DELAWARE – If you’re a Delaware resident and looking to save money on your energy bill, Energize Delaware is asking you to take their free assessment.
This new virtual home assessment is a tool designed to provide residents with a quick and easy method to provide ways to save money on their energy bills.
Due to the pandemic, Energize Delaware was unable to do in-person assessments, so they came up with a virtual way. Customers we’re seeing higher energy bills this past year, and according to Energize, they were looking for ways to save money.
This new online program will ask about your home features, appliances you use, provide tips for saving energy and much more. This assessment is just one of many programs Energize uses to help people in the state find ways to decrease energy use, and save money.
Program Director at Energize, Suzanne Sebastian says, “We’re all spending a lot more time at home these days and I think a lot of us are noticing our rooms are a little uncomfortable, maybe some of our bills are going up and we might be able to take some actions that might help that.” Tony DePrima, an Executive Director at Energize says “We’re hoping that not only will they find good ways of saving money in their homes and saving energy, but it may lead them to other programs that we offer.”
Directors at Energize also tell 47 ABC, this assessment is a first step program that will eventually lead to the development of a marketplace where residents can buy energy efficiency products at a subsidized rate.
