The purpose of these guidelines is to define procedures relating to the Cool Switch Low Impact Refrigerant Program (Cool Switch). Cool Switch promotes the use of refrigerants with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) lower than 1,500 by Delaware non-residential (commercial and industrial) customers. Refrigerants must also comply with existing Delaware regulations. Applicants should keep abreast of regulations currently under development that may affect the use of certain HFCs in Delaware, beginning as early as January 1, 2021. For more information, please visit https://dnrec.alpha.delaware.gov/air/permitting/under-development/.
The goal in establishing these guidelines is to provide a streamlined procedure for administering the Cool Switch Program in an efficient manner. These guidelines provide rules of practice and procedures for grant applications and disbursement of grants for energy efficiency projects in Delaware.
