					 State of Delaware Energy Assurance Plan (SEAP)




                                          Executive Summary
 The Delaware Energy Emergency Response Plan (DEERP) is a comprehensive manual for state
 government leaders charged with the responsibility of ensuring the health, welfare, and safety of the
 citizens of the state during periods of energy emergencies. The plan describes the way the state will
 respond if an energy shortage of a substantial nature occurs or appears imminent. The Delaware
 Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, State Energy Office (SEO) is the lead
 agency for energy emergency planning. The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) director
 is the primary advisor to the governor in an emergency/energy crisis. The SEO and DEMA works in close
 consultation with the Delaware Public Service Commission (PSC) during energy emergency shortages.
 The plan uses three basic strategies to minimize disruption of energy supply or the perception of an
 emergency. These strategies are: voluntary and mandatory demand reduction measures, substitution of
 alternative resources when possible, and state government programs to curtail excessive use. Further, the
 plan defines emergency conditions and how to monitor the indicators; identifies key players, as well as
 their roles and responsibilities; identifies the flow of information among agencies, private industry, and the
 public; recommends “measures” to reduce demand on resources; and discusses the economic impact of
 higher priced fuel on low-income persons. The plan is organized around three emergency response
 phases that contain increasing levels of activity depending on the severity of the energy emergency.
 These are discussed in Chapter 2.
 This plan outlines means the state can use to monitor an energy shortage and decide whether or not an
 energy emergency should be declared. It describes the actions that must be taken to declare a state of
 energy emergency. It outlines decision-making and administrative structure that will be used during a time
 of emergency. It suggests levels of emergency that may occur for shortages of each fuel type with
 voluntary and/or mandatory measures appropriate for the level of shortage.
 If a substantial shortage exists, or appears imminent, the SEO and the DEMA director will recommend that
 an energy emergency be declared for one or more fuel sources. At this time the Director of DEMA may
 open the Delaware Emergency Operations Center (State EOC), to be staffed jointly by SEO staff, ESF-12
 Group, DEMA staff, relevant state agencies, and others. The Governor may call into order various
 agencies of state government, representatives of local governments, and non-governmental organizations.
 The Governor may recommend voluntary reduction in energy use such as lowering thermostats, or in a
 severe crisis may require that certain buildings be closed for the duration of the emergency and heated or
 cooled only at building protection levels. The Governor might initially encourage carpooling or later require
 alternate day fill-ups for motor vehicles. These measures will be voluntary to the extent possible and
 mandatory in more severe fuel shortages and may be localized or statewide in scope. The goal of actions
 recommended or required by the Governor will be to distribute available resources in an equitable manner,
 to maintain essential services to the extent possible, and to protect the health and welfare of Delaware’s
 citizens. Fuel assistance programs designed to help mitigate energy-related economic hardships to low-
 income households are discussed in Chapter 10.
 The plan relies on the free market to operate, with government intervention assumed only under
 conditions of extreme emergency. During an energy emergency, the state’s responsibility is to
 communicate, coordinate, aid, and assist. The private sector’s responsibility is to repair damage and get
 commercial and industrial systems back on track as soon as possible. These actions are achievable
 through communication, cooperation, and reliance on the voluntary action of communities, suppliers, and
 Delaware’s citizens. Additional support information, such as public information brochures, press releases,
 and key contacts are located at the SEO office in Dover, Delaware.

 State of Delaware Energy Assurance Plan (SEAP)




                                                  Preface
   The State of Delaware, its political subdivisions, and its citizens are highly dependent
   upon energy resources. A serious energy shortage could bring substantial injury to
   commercial and industrial activity and to the personal health, safety, and welfare of
   Delaware’s citizens.
   The Delaware Department of Natural Resources Environmental Control, State Energy
   Office (SEO) is designated as the coordinating agency for energy emergency planning,
   response, and mitigation. This plan reflects the state’s priorities for a response to an
   energy shortage. In order to implement this plan, a number of state agencies, entities,
   and others will work together to successfully mitigate energy shortages through
   conservation and other means. The goals and objectives outlined in the plan and within
   the appendices support this effort. Accomplishments can be realized only by joint
   efforts, dedication, and commitment to energy shortage mitigation. Clear recognition is
   made that energy producers and suppliers have emergency response plans of their
   own, which will be used in emergency situations.
   The Delaware State Energy Office encourages companies,                 institutions,   and
   communities to develop and exercise plans for energy emergencies.

               This plan was prepared in accordance with U.S. Public Law 94-163,
