Wind Power on the House Agenda

HCR 38 is on the House agenda today. HCR 38 would recommend that the Controller General vote to approve the Bluewater Wind agreement.
The resolution is number eight out of eleven items, so it isn't clear when or whether it will be considered by the House today. If it doesn't, we will have to wait until the General Assembly reconvenes on April 8.
If it does look like it will run, I will head down to Leg Hall.
Afterwards, I plan to head to Cape Henlopen for the 40th Annual Kite Festival on Friday. It runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For more information, you can call the Park Office at (302) 645-8983.
By the way, winds tomorrow are expected to be blowing from the NNW at 20 mph.

If you don't want to shell out money for a kite,
vintageprojects.com has instructions on building your own, just like the old days.

I got a short report of the hearing. Kempton was on fire. Everyone slammed the award to NRG of the backup since it doesn't seem as if there is any savings with it in the least. (Delmarva claims that whatever BWW can't deliver will be covered by high cost spot market purchase no matter that we have a backup).

I heard that GE has a pilot off-shore farm off of Ireland and that they are waiting to see benefit/liability.

I'll check back to hear your impressions.
