DEC is considering lowering rates for all 102,000 Co-op members!
Delaware Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors will vote on a proposed rate decrease at a special meeting to be held on May 20th. Due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, the meeting will be held via teleconference. We'll provide instructions on how to participate soon. If the rate decrease is approved, electric costs for members would fall by four percent, saving the average Co-op member $60 per year. The move would save DEC’s membership $7 million per year. The rate decrease would take effect on June 1.
Co-op employees work very hard to keep electric rates affordable. Wholesale power costs are falling, and our Beat the Peak program has also helped to keep our rates among the lowest in the region. Members can submit questions or comments about the rate decrease to DEC by mail. DEC's address is 14198 Sussex Highway, Greenwood, DE 19950. Comments and questions can also be submitted electronically by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
