SALISBURY, Md. – Delmarva Power will conduct a Peak Savings Day test on Thursday. The company said customers who participate could save money by saving energy.

Delmarva Power is asking all of its customers to conserve energy from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18 as part of a test event required by PJM, the electric grid operator for Maryland and Delaware.

For residential and small commercial customers in Delaware, the company said Thursday would be a Peak Savings Day, which means customers will be rewarded with bill credits when they voluntarily reduce energy use. According to Delmarva Power, Delaware customers who reduce energy use below their specified baseline between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Sept. 18 can receive a credit of $1.25 off their bill for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of reduced usage. The company said those Delaware customers would automatically receive a phone call indicating the savings period.

For both Delaware and Maryland customers participating in Delmarva Power's Energy Wise Rewards program, the company said a conservation event will be called during the same time frame. According to the company, this means that Delmarva Power will cycle air conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during the hour. The company said most customers will not notice the difference, because the air conditioner fans will continue to run. They said customers might experience a one to three degree change in temperature during this time. It may take up to a half-hour after the test event ends at 3 p.m. for air conditioners to resume normal operations, according to Delmarva Power.

The company said Maryland customers participating in the program receive a bill reduction in return for allowing Delmarva Power to cycle their air conditioners a few days each year. And for Delaware customers, the company said the automatic air conditioner energy reduction will contribute to their Peak Energy Savings Credit.

Customers with questions about the Peak Energy Savings Credit program by calling 1-855-750-PEAK or visiting www.delmarva.com. For questions about Energy Wise Rewards, call 1-866-353-5799 or visit www.delmarva.com/rewards.

    As Neglected Animals Recover, the Owner's Family Speaks Out

    The 31 dogs rescued from a home in Seaford are on the mend, officials say.

    "After our team worked to shave them down, we saw what we expected: that they were severely emaciated," says Brandywine Valley SPCA Georgetown Campus Director Walter Fenstermacher. "But what we didn't expect was how warm their personalities were and how forthcoming they were and wanted to be pet and loved by our staff members."
