Delmarva Power is a member of Philanthropy Delaware. 

As part of this year’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Action Day, Delmarva Power employees Cindy Ventresca, Enid Wallace Simms, and Mike Hoy spent two days in the nation’s capital advocating for policies that protect funding for the LIHEAP program.

It’s been another cold winter on the Delmarva Peninsula, which for some means it’s a struggle to manage energy bills. Energy assistance is still available in Delaware and Maryland to help pay for winter energy bills. LIHEAP provides up to $1,000 in grant support per customer, depending on a household’s income, size and type of fuel, with no pay back required. 

"We spend a lot of our time reaching out to customers across our service area at a variety of community forums and through our work with community partner organizations,” said Mike Hoy, senior community relations specialist for Delmarva Power.
