Delaware Electric Cooperative at Bayside

By Carrie Hellens, in Bayside

Bayside - Streetscape

One major thing we take for granted in our area is how fortunate we are to have Delaware Electric Cooperative as our energy provider. If this is not a huge determining factor when you purchase a home, it really should be!

We may not think about it much at any other time, but when a storm hits and there is the threat of loss of power, who you have working on your side makes all the difference. Time and time again our lineman put their lives at risk for the sake of safety and convenience. It is a thankless job but one I feel we should recognize! These guys are fast and efficient. The hand full of times we are without power, and regardless of the situation, they are always quick to respond.

A non-profit member-owned company is something you don’t always hear about. They do a lot to help contribute to our monthly savings, from their Beat the Peak program that alerts us when to conserve energy, to their innovative ways of investing in alternative energy like solar panels. All of this adds up to cost savings for every member.

In comparison to other providers, DEC really stands out and stands up strong against their competition. Why put yourself in a home where the provider offers less service for double the cost? Bayside along with many Schell Brothers communities are happy to partner with the coop to provide the most energy savings possible. Why would you consider anything less?

While most of us sit comfortably at home, members of DEC work under the most unbearable conditions and have done so over the last 80 years! For that, we greatly appreciate their service. Please continue to keep our lights on!

Eagles at Bayside

By Carrie Hellens, in Bayside

Bayside in Fenwick Island

We are very fortunate to have eagles here in Bayside at Fenwick Island. From my desk in the model the other day, I looked up and just couldn’t contain my excitement as I watched one of our eagles take off from the ground right before me.

Since their nest is visible from our model home here in Bayside, we get to observe a lot of their activity. The beauty of these birds delight not only me but our homeowners as well. Watching these magnificent birds made me rather curious to learn a little more about them. As I researched, I found some interesting facts. What I discovered about our feathered friends made me appreciate them even more so I wanted to share what I learned with you.

An eagle’s typical life span can be up to 20 to 25 years, however 70% to 80% of them die before they reach the age of 5. A lot of their young tragically fall from their nest before they learn to fly. Unlike most other birds, males and females look relatively the same and have little to no variation in color. The females are typically a few pounds larger weighing in at around 14 pounds. Their wing span is 6 feet to 7.5 feet wide. They can fly up to 30 MPH and dive for prey up to 100 mph. They can see up to 3 miles away. Now we know where the phrase “eagle eye” comes from!!

Next time you see an eagle, you can surprise your friends and families with some of these fun facts. Or you can just take in the beauty of these magnificent creatures.
