Delaware State Public Benefit Funds
Restructuring legislation provides funding for low-income energy assistance and weatherization through a systems benefit charge (SBC) on Delmarva Power & Light Company customers. In 2007, about $500,000 from the SBC was supplemented by state funds for low-income
energy assistance, weatherization and furnace replacements. The
Department of Health and Social Services, Division of State Service
Centers, the LIHEAP grantee, administers the fund as a program
that is separate from LIHEAP, mostly for clients at or above 150
percent of federal poverty guidelines.
