Beat the Peak With Electric Vehicles

Receive a $200 Billing Credit When You Beat the Peak With Your EV!  

By now, most members have probably heard of Delaware Electric Cooperative’s Beat the Peak program. The program asks members to conserve energy during times of peak energy use when the price to produce and purchase power is very high. By voluntarily conserving energy during these peak times, members help to keep rates low. Members who have purchased or who are considering the purchase of an electric vehicle (EV) can play a new and important role in our Beat the Peak program. Delaware Electric Cooperative will offer a one-time $200 billing credit and an additional $5 monthly billing credit ($60 per year) for EV owners who do not use their EV chargers during Beat the Peak alerts. To receive the credit, you must have a ChargePoint Home electric vehicle charger that is connected to WIFI. Members will need to download the ChargePoint app to sign up for this important program. Once you sign up, a signal will be sent to your charger that will regulate the flow of power during Beat the Peak alerts, saving all members money. The State of Delaware currently offers a 50% rebate up to $500 on the cost of ChargePoint Home chargers. Click here for more information about state rebates.
