Delaware Electric launches electric charger pilot program


Delaware Electric Cooperative is launching an electric vehicle charger pilot program.

The cooperative is looking for members with electric vehicles to participate in this program. Qualified members will receive a freeChargePoint Home electric car charger, valued at $700.

The charger is the smallest and most advanced charging station on the market.

Members will need:

  • An all-electric vehicle
  • Average consumption of 1,000 kWh or more per month.
  • Be willing to allow the cooperative to interrupt charging during times of peak energy use – these are the times when the co-op issues a Beat the Peak alert! Beat the Peak alerts are usually issued a few times per month and last, on average, 2-3 hours.
  • Share data related to their vehicle charging.

Members will be able to keep the charger after the pilot program has ended.

The program is being launched to help the Cooperative better plan for the costs and energy demand that the expanded use of electric vehicles will likely bring.

Members interested in participating in the pilot program can email Kevin Yingling at for more details.

The cooperative serves portions of Kent and Sussex counties.
