Dominion Energy Launches Program in Orangeburg County to Help Customers Save Energy and Money

Company kicks off home weatherization program for eligible communities in Bowman and Branchville

CAYCE, S.C. (July 9, 2024) – More than 700 customers in two Orangeburg County communities are now eligible for free energy-saving products and services. Dominion Energy recently hosted two kickoff events in the towns of Bowman and Branchville to inform residents of the Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP), which offers energy efficiency home assessments and weatherization products and services to eligible customers.

Customers began receiving information on how to participate in June. Installations in some homes have begun and will continue through the end of August. Dominion Energy South Carolina started NEEP in 2013 to provide eligible residential electric customers with energy education and direct free installation of energy-saving improvements.

“This program gives us the opportunity to engage with our customers across our service territory to provide them with tools and knowledge focused on energy conservation, aimed at enhancing the energy efficiency of their homes,” said Derek McDaniel, program manager of Dominion Energy South Carolina’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program. “Program representatives work with each customer to ensure we’re providing tips and services that fit their home’s needs.”

Energy-saving products available to program-eligible residential customers include the following:  

  • LED light bulbs 
  • Faucet aerators
  • Low-flow shower heads
  • Electric water heater wraps and insulation for water pipes
  • Weatherstripping for doors and windows
  • Advanced power strips
  • Adjustment of electric water heater temperature
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning filter replacement

Since the program began, Dominion Energy customers in South Carolina have reduced electricity usage by more than 1 billion kilowatt hours – that’s enough energy to power approximately 92,000 homes for a year.

Dominion Energy offers a comprehensive portfolio of EnergyWise programs that work together to increase overall energy efficiency and reduce energy usage. For more information about these programs, visit or call toll-free at 877-510-7234.
