Delmarva Chicken Association Offers Energy Cost Savings With Electric Buying Group

Since 2006, hundreds of Delmarva Chicken Association members have saved more than $2 million through participating in DCA's Electric Buying Groups. Now, DCA is inviting new and current members who are Delmarva Power customers to join our next Electric Buying Group, with a deadline to take action by Sept. 10.

The current DCA Electric Buying Group contract provides an opportunity to save an average of $1,000 per year for DCA members, including chicken growers, allied businesses and large residential customers served by Delmarva Power. The current electric buying group is the largest electric aggregation buying group on the Delmarva peninsula, with more than 500 participating accounts. DCA works with Affinity Energy Management, an independent energy consultant based in Delaware, to negotiate and procure the contract.
