ADVISORY: Thank you for your interest in Delaware Electric Cooperative’s Renewable Resource Program. Applications for the 2017 program will be accepted from Jan. 23 - 27, 2017.
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.
Please note that the date of the DEC final interconnection approval will be used as part of the ranking process for PV and Wind systems. For Geothermal systems, the date of the DNREC well permit for the geothermal system will be used as part of the ranking process for the applications. Please be sure a copy of the well permit and the conditions pages are included with your application documents for systems that require a well permit.
If applications were previously submitted to our office, please be advised that these documents were not kept for future submittals. All current required application documents must be re-submitted to be reviewed and considered for funding in the 2017 Renewable Resource Program.
Applicants are encouraged to submit applications electronically to the DNREC Green Energy Program Email: DNREC_GreenEnergyProgram@state.de.us so there is an electronic record of the documents submitted to our office and the applicant will retain their original documents for future reference if needed. Applications can also be mailed to the Division of Energy & Climate. Please be sure to retain a copy of all application documents provided to our office for your records and for future reference should program staff need to contact you during the application review process.
2017 Renewable Resource Program Information
Grant Payment Information
Grant payments are issued by the Delaware Electric Cooperative.
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 two 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 has been approved, 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.
