Intergrated Resource Plan Hearings this Week

Do you care how Delaware provides for its energy needs?
The Public Service Commission (PSC) is holding hearings on Delmarva Power's Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) this week. The IRP is the plan that Delmarva presents to the PSC to provide energy to its Delaware customers.
If you care how much coal is burned to provide our electricity; if you care how much we turn to wind power and energy efficiency; if you care about the externalities such as health and environmental costs being considered in the energy equation, then your voice needs to be heard.
So, if you care about this stuff, and can handle an arcane trip into the lost world of acronyms, please head out to one of the hearings:
Tuesday, January 12 at 7 PM, Carvel State Office Bldg., Auditorium on the Mezzanine Level, 820 North French Street in Wilmington
Wednesday, January 13 at 7 PM, Del Tech Theater, Delaware Technical & Community College, Rt. 18 & Seashore Highway (Rt. 113) in Georgetown
Thursday, January 14 at 7 PM, Public Service Commission, 861 Silver Lake Blvd. in Dover
There are heaps of documents to be found at the IRP webpage. In particular, I find the comments from DNREC and Jeremy Firestone are worth reading.
We learned during the fight over wind power that the public can make a difference. So come on out and make your voice heard. Tell 'em TommyWonk sent you.
