ADVISORY: The Delaware Electric Cooperative Renewable Resource Program is currently closed. Program funding for calendar year 2016 has been exhausted and the program is not currently accepting new applications. Information regarding the 2017 program will be released by the Delaware Electric Cooperative in December.
The Delaware Electric Cooperative offers grants through the Renewable Resource Program to offset the installed cost of photovoltaic, solar water heating, wind, and geothermal renewable energy systems. Cooperative members and contractors applying for grants for photovoltaic, solar water heating, wind, and geothermal heat pumps must provide project information to the Division of Energy & Climate to be approved for funding.
Due to the popularity of the Renewable Resource Program and the limited funding collected by the Delaware Electric Cooperative for the program, all applicants approved for funding through the Renewable Resource Program will wait approximately three years for grant payment after their application is approved. The Delaware Electric Cooperative maintains a list of approved grants that are queued for payment to allow members to monitor their payment status. If your application is complete, please click here to view the Cooperative's payment queue. The Division of Energy & Climate only administers the program and conducts technical reviews of applications. The Division of Energy & Climate does not maintain the grant payment queue or issue grant payments. Questions regarding grant payment should be directed to Mark Nielson at 302-349-9090.
