SALISBURY, Md., April 16, 2024 /3BL/ - Delmarva Power has received national recognition for the significant impacts its energy efficiency programs are having in helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and providing millions of dollars in savings for Maryland customers on their energy bills. The company has received the 2024 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year: Sustained Excellence Award for Energy Efficiency Program Delivery from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). This is the eighth year Delmarva Power has received this recognition for the company’s energy efficiency programs in Maryland, which are helping customers better understand and manage their energy use and save money.

The Sustained Excellence designation is awarded to companies that continue to exhibit exceptional leadership year after year in the ENERGY STAR program while remaining dedicated to environmental protection through superior energy efficiency achievements.

Regan. “I congratulate this year’s ENERGY STAR award winners for their innovation and leadership, in delivering cost-effective energy efficient solutions that create jobs, address climate change and contribute to a healthier environment for all.”
