Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility
ENERGY STAR Promotion
The Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (DESEU) is a nonprofit organization that helps residents and businesses save money through clean energy and efficiency. DESEU works in cooperation with all of Delaware’s energy providers to bring energy efficiency programs to homes, businesses, nonprofits, government facilities, and schools. DESEU is receiving ENERGY STAR® recognition for its distinguished promotion of Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (HPwES). Key 2016 accomplishments include:
- Launching an Assisted HPwES program to reach income-eligible customers that do not qualify for weatherization assistance, but also cannot afford to participate in the market-rate program.
- Conducting outreach to state and nonprofit agencies throughout Delaware, including the Faith Efficiencies Initiative. Energy Advisors routinely meet with religious organizations to conduct energy workshops focused on the benefits of HPwES.
- Creating a HPwES Ally Network to support participating contractors and the integration of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) measures and HPwES.
- Driving demand for HPwES with low interest financing and a digital marketing campaign that generated more than 4.5 million impressions.
