Under Delaware's RPS, rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities can opt out of the mandated portfolio requirements if they establish a green energy fund and a voluntary green power purchasing program.

The Delaware Electric Cooperative, which serves Kent and Sussex Counties, opted out of the RPS requirements and began offering a voluntary green power program to its customers. Starting on June 1, 2007, the Cooperative is offering green power subscriptions in 100 kilowatt-hour blocks at a monthly premium price of $0.20 per block. The green power is supplied by a landfill gas facility.

To enroll in the program, customers should contact the Cooperative customer service centers at (302) 349-9090 (Sussex County) and (302) 398-9090 (Kent County).
