The Delmarva Power Family Farms Program helps residentially metered customers make their farm operations more energy-efficient, while lowering operating costs. Get rebates for installing energy-efficient products and learn more about energy-efficient equipment.

If your farm is eligible, there are two ways to participate in the program:

The Prescriptive choice offers a series of choices with predetermined rebates for a wide selection of common energy-efficient lighting measures, including:

  • Light emitting diode (LED) bulbs and fixtures

  • Pulse-start metal halide
  • Lighting controls, including occupancy sensors

2. Custom (Energy-efficient Technology)
