The City of Newark offers grants to support photovoltaic, geothermal, solar water heating, and wind turbine renewable energy projects. Only customers who receive an electric bill directly from the City of Newark are eligible for this program.
Due to limited funding, municipal customers applying for the Municipal Green Energy Program will be placed in queue for payment by the Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation (DEMEC). Approved grants will be paid by municipalities as funds are available. Applicants should inquire with DEMEC regarding grant payment timelines and program funding prior to requesting a grant.
Submit completed applications to DNREC_GreenEnergyProgram@delaware.gov or mail applications to the Green Energy Program, Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy, 100 West Water Street, Suite 5A, Dover DE 19904.
For questions about the grant payment queue, please contact Scott Lynch (DEMEC) at 302-653-2733.
