Bluewater makes promise on future prices  

An offshore wind farm developer said today it would not raise the price of its power if the prices of steel and other commodities go up.

In making the concession, Bluewater Wind hoped to win over state regulators who have said the company’s offer to sign a long-term power purchase agreement with Delmarva Power would be too expensive.

In a filing with the Public Service Commission, Bluewater attorney Thomas McGonigle argued Delmarva undermined the negotiating process, trying to drive up the price of wind power so the utility could later argue against it.

Delmarva President Gary Stockbridge, who was at today’s PSC meeting, called the accusation disingenuous.

McGonigle said the state should step in and negotiate a 25-year deal for wind power on behalf of Delmarva.

Bluewater has proposed a 150-turbine wind farm 11.7 miles off the coast of Rehoboth Beach.
