Delaware lawmakers consider fuel cell legislation and regulation

Delaware lawmakers are set to consider legislation that would establish guidelines and regulations for fuel-cell energy. 

Bloom Energy of California announced June 9th that it would establish a facility at the former Chrysler plant in Newark, now owned by the University of Delaware.  About 900 people would be employed there, and an estimated 600 would also be working at various suppliers.  Today, members of the State Senate Executive Committee meet at Legislative Hall in Dover to consider legislation to create a fuel-cell regulatory framework within the Delaware Public Service Commission, and to set the criteria for implementing fuel-cell energy as a part of Delmarva Power’s renewable energy portfolio.  The hearing is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.  CLICK HERE to read the legislation.
