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.


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 and a 2021 DCA member 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.
