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!
