TommyWonk on WDEL this Evening

Allan Loudell has invited me back on WDEL, 1150 AM at 5:35 to discuss the week's news politics and wind power. It has certainly been a busy week. Topic A, of course, is wind power and the economic development value of the Bluewater Wind project.
The News Journal reports that Bluewater and Lt. Gov. John Carney jointly announced that the company plans to make Delaware the hub of its east coast operations if the agreement is approved.
If you miss me during rush hour, WDEL also posts podcasts of recent interviews for your listening pleasure.

Tommy, I just found out about the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) today. This is a state level cap-and-trade pilot program for carbon emissions that includes Delaware, and begins later this year. I would have thought this would have been central to any discussion on electric generation prices for those in the know in Delaware - though I haven't heard any mention of it from you. This certainly changes the whole equation in the favor of wind.

Thanks for listening, Shirley.

Nick, I have been studying RGGI, and will be writing aobut how it could affect the wind power proposal when time and space permit.

Keep in mind that Harris McDowell has scheduled five hearings starting Feb. 7 and ending March 5, which will give us time to discuss the bigger picture of state renewable energy portfolio standards, RGGI, the SEU and much more.

Stay tuned.
