Energize Delaware announced that the Empowerment Grant Program (EGP), funded by the Exelon Merger for Delmarva Power Customers in Delaware, is awarding $100,000 to Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH). In its application, SCHFH proposed an insulated skirting program to help 30 low-income Delmarva Power customers living in manufactured housing –housing that is often left out of home repairs and weatherization programs. Delmarva Power customers could receive a new insulated skirt at no cost. This program will install insulated skirting to eligible low-income manufactured homeowners and renters in Sussex County. Insulated skirting increases the energy efficiency of manufactured homes and can decrease energy costs by up to 25%.
To apply for this program, visit Habitat for Humanity Sussex County’s office or contact Michael D’Ovidio, Neighborhood Revitalization Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
