Rep. Gilligan
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 26 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO DELAWARE'S RENEWABLE ENERGY PORTFOLIO STANDARDS AND DELAWARE-MANUFACTURED FUEL CELLS.
This Bill allows the energy output from fuel cells manufactured in Delaware that can run on renewable fuels to be an eligible resource to fulfill a portion of the requirements for a Commission-regulated utility under the Renewable Portfolio Standards Act. In addition, this Bill makes Delmarva Power & Light responsible for the RPS obligations of all its customers, and creates a process to assure that any supplier contracts in place are grandfathered through the transition. Finally, this Bill creates a regulatory framework by which the Delaware Public Service Commission will review a Tariff to be filed by Delmarva deploying Delaware-manufactured fuel cells as part of a 30MW project. In determining whether to approve or deny the Tariff, the Commission shall among other factors, consider the incremental cost of the fuel cell project to customers, taking into consideration whether the project utilizes innovative baseload technologies, offers environmental benefits to the state relative to conventional baseload generation, enhances economic development in the State, and promotes price stability over the project term.
