DEMEC donates $250,000 to provide COVID relief to customers
The Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation (DEMEC) is donating $250,000 to provide additional relief to customers facing hardship during the COVID pandemic. Smyrna-based DEMEC’s member communities unanimously decided at the beginning of the pandemic to avoid shutoffs and late fees for customers struggling to pay their utility bills. The $250,000 donation will be split among DEMEC’s eight member communities to enhance their current customer assistance funds. As members of Delaware’s only joint action agency, DEMEC members benefit from shared resources that help keep costs low and more money in their communities to enhance customers’ quality of life.
