A Valuable Membership Benefit That Saves You Money: DCA's 10th Electric Buying Group is Being Formed in Fall 2021

Click here to download the DCA Electric Buying Group FAQ sheet.

Since 2006, hundreds of DCA members like you have saved over $2 million through the previous DCA Electric Buying Groups. We expect to continue to generate additional savings and long-term energy cost certainty for DCA members with the new 2021 contract.
Our current Electric Buying Group contract provided 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 DCA member participating accounts.

How Do I Qualify For the New Electric Buying Group?

To qualify for the new Electric Buying Group that will start in November 2021, you must be a Delmarva Power customer (with a minimum average monthly electric bill of $500 over 12 months) and a 2021 DCA member (grower, allied business, or company employee) with a minimum annual dues payment of $150. Additionally, you must agree to continue your membership at a minimum annual dues payment of $150 for each year of the electric buying group. The deadline to sign up is September 10, 2021. The average buying group member saves approximately $1,000 per year by participating in the program.

How Do I Sign Up?

To take advantage of this very valuable membership benefit, simply make a copy of the front and back (all pages) of a recent Delmarva Power invoice and send that along with all your contact information to Ed Jackson (see below for contact information). The deadline to enroll is September 10, 2021. Existing members in the current Electric Buying Group contract do not need to send in Delmarva Power invoice copies, but do need to contact Ed Jackson to express interest if they wish to enroll in the upcoming contract.
