Delaware ElectricCooperative Website Redesign & Development

A Utility Company Built on Customer Service & Savings

Delaware Electric Co-Op was formed in 1936 by a group of farmers in southern Delaware. The major utilities at the time wouldn’t invest the capital to expand the electrical infrastructure to rural areas, so farmers formed a non-profit utility and financed rural electrification themselves. DEC has changed a lot since the 1930s, but we are still member-owned. Delaware Electric Cooperative (DEC) is a unique utility and our business model is strikingly different from investor-owned utilities. DEC's only goal is to do what’s best for our members.

LOCATION: Greenwood, Delaware (38.8071° N, 75.5913° W)

The Challenge:

Delaware Electric Coop sought us out to recreate their site and refresh their user experience with a mobile-friendly responsive design. Their goal was to build a higher level of interactivity with their end users as the focus. As part of that project, they were looking for a way to present data from their solar farm in a simple and attractive format, using the SunEdison API.

Our Solution:

We re-architectured the site to make it more useful for the target audience and integrated it with SmartHub, their customer account management software. To create a solution for the solar farm data, we built a custom Drupal module that pulled data from the SunEdison API into live-feed charts and a visual dashboard on their home page. DEC was so pleased with the work we did that they came to us to do the next iteration of their site, which was a first for them.

The Result:

DEC-Site

Another Delaware Organization, we love it!

Our collaboration with Delaware Electric Co-Op always ends up with an amazing result; and this definitely did not stray away from the norm.

All of the work going into this was customer-centric, with a goal to produce results that not only will improve management for the DEC Team but most importantly make the experience useful and straightforward for those using the company's services.
