Welcome to Energize Delaware!

DESEU 32005 FY21 Program Branding_Final Logos_Home Peformance with Energy Star 



Energize Delaware’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program takes a whole-house approach to reducing a home’s energy use while improving its comfort, durability and safety. Instead of tackling energy problems individually, such as replacing an old heating and cooling system or fixing leaky ductwork, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® looks at a home as one system and recommends comprehensive improvements for better results.

New Incentives Available! 

Energize Delaware and Franklin Energy are excited to announce that new incentives are now available through our Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program! The goals of these new incentives are to help expand on the solutions we can offer our customers by 1) Further incentivizing whole-home ductless mini-split participation AND 2) Incentivizing whole-home dehumidification to promote the health and safety (and durability) benefits of humidity control.

Our teams have worked closely with the Best Practices Working Group to set in place effective incentive levels to help drive these goals. We look forward to seeing the impact they have and continuing to provide support to you TAs who serve as the driving force behind this program. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Franklin Team if there are questions on how these new incentives will apply!

A Second Bite at the Apple 

Written by Dan McBrien, Energy Advisor

Energize Delaware and Franklin Energy would like to recognize the quality of workmanship displayed by North East Home Energy Savers at a recent project they completed in Wilmington. The homeowners, husband and wife, had recently downsized from a larger home in Wilmington where they first discovered Delaware’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program. With the house on the market, they decided to move forward with an initial energy assessment to gain a better understanding of the home’s energy usage and identify opportunities to increase the value of the home.

Using their customized report as a guide, they had two of our Home Performance contractors transform the residence and its market value, taking advantage of program incentives along the way. Hillside Heating & Cooling converted the home from oil to natural gas, and North East Home Energy Savers performed extensive weatherization measures on the shell of the home. When the time came to sell, these homeowners were able to provide their buyer with a comprehensive report of the home and a certificate of completion for the work they had performed through the program!
