Oversight Board



Delaware's Sustainable Energy Utility (SEU) is a unique nonprofit organization created to foster a sustainable energy future for the state. The SEU’s Oversight Board includes public, academic and private sector representatives who are responsible for overseeing the establishment and progress of SEU’s programs. These initiatives are designed to help residents and businesses save energy and money, create jobs and improve the environment through new, clean energy sources.

The nine-member board includes an impressive cross-section of leaders from across the state who have a wealth of experience in energy issues and who are committed to providing new and better ways for Delawareans to become more energy efficient.  The following by-laws were established in 2009.
