Wind Power Resolution Stalls in the House

The Delaware House of Representatives did not act today on HCR 38, which would recommend that the Controller General join three other state agencies in approving the Bluewater Wind project.
There is little question that HCR 38 will pass the House when it comes to a vote. It has 22 sponsors among House members and several more yes votes when the roll call finally happens. But it's not happening this week. The House agenda is controlled by the majority caucus, which is almost evenly split. Even so, l
eadership on both sides of the aisle understands the proposal is immensely popular.
The General Assembly is off for two weeks. When it reconvenes, House leadership will face growing pressure to bring the measure to a vote. In the meanwhile, opponents of the project will continue to look for excuses to kill the project while maintaining that they really do like wind power.
One issue that will continue to generate debate is that of spreading the customer base beyond Delmarva's SOS ratepayers. I will have more on this subject next week.
In the meanwhile, I'm off to pitch a tent among the sand dunes. I'll be back Sunday.

The manipulation of facts continues. Now Delmarva/PEPCO has enlisted the help of the Delaware Electric Co-op in panning BWW's proposal to meet the requirements of HB6 by saying they've "found" a provider for cheaper wind power. Will the b/s never end? Wonder who the "provider" is and what connection they have to PEPCO
