Energy Policy

Delaware's current renewable energy policy is costing Delaware's residents and businesses hundreds of millions of dollars per year to purchase electrical power from non-competitive sources, such as wind, solar and solid oxide fuel cells; and to participate in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a regional "cap and trade" program.

Continuing the current energy policy will further increase electrical power costs causing the loss of more jobs. I support legislation that will make Delaware more competitive with other states in energy rates.

Utility rates are an important factor companies consider when looking to locate in a state.
