DNREC’s Division of Energy & Climate has announced changes to the Green Energy Fund grant program for Delmarva Power residential customers.
The SEU Upfront Purchase program has been closed to Part 2 applications. All funding ($3,750,000) has been reserved by currently submitted Part 2 applications. Please contact us if you have any questions.
This post is a reminder that Part 1 applications for the SEU Upfront Purchase Program will no longer be accepted starting April 1st. The deadline for submitting Part 1 applications is Friday, March 31st.
The SEU has begun the process of ending the SEU Upfront SREC Purchase Program once the $3,750,000 allocated to the program has been dispersed to eligible projects. In order to make this a smooth transition the following actions have been taken:
The SEU has allocated an additional $1.5 million to the SEU Upfront SREC Purchase Program. To view current fund availability, click here.
There is currently a residential delayed payment queue of more than 12 months for the Delmarva Power & Light Green Energy Rebate Program. Please be aware that this payment queue continues to grow as we are receiving an unprecedented number of applications for rebate incentives. The Department (DNREC) is currently conducting a review and evaluation of the program to identify ways to improve program processes and sustain the program to provide appropriate incentives for renewable energy systems in Delaware.
Over the past several months, DNREC has made a few changes to the documentation required to receive a Green Energy Fund Grant. All Part 2 applications now require a photo of the completed renewable energy system. This photo will be uploaded to the online portal at the same time as all the other documents. Secondly, DNREC no longer requires a copy of the system’s warranty or a copy of building inspection approval documents for any type of system.
Below are links to sample ‘Part 1’ applications for the Green Energy Grant program. All of the information listed on each of these applications will be needed in order for your application to be considered. In addition to the information on these forms, all technology types will need to upload the following documents:
