Rehobeth Beach gets energy grant

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has given a $500,000 grant to Rehoboth Beach to improve energy efficiency in four municipal buildings.

 Among the projects the money will fund are a 40-kilowatt system of solar panels on the Public Works Department.

The roof at the Convention Center will be repaired, and insulation, windows, heat pumps, water heaters and lighting will be added to City Hall and Cape Henlopen Senior Center.

With the repaired Convention Center roof, Rehoboth Beach will save about $14,910 each year.
