Renewable energy bill passed

DELAWARE – According to local legislators, a renewable energy bill that passed last week is still causing concerns. In the renewable energy bill, legislators say it aims to focus on ways to produce cleaner less carbonated air.

According to electric power experts, with fossil fuel energy, more carbon goes into the air which pollutes the environment. With renewable energy, the air is essentially “carbon free.”

However, some legislators say, they have concerns about the bill and they believe this would inflate high electricity rates, reduce consumer cost protections and undermine the stability of the power grid.

Critics of the bill say, they’re just hoping tax payers won’t have to pay the price as they have for similar bills that passed in recent years. Overall, electric companies say they’re excited to enact this bill and continue creating renewable energy.

President and CEO of Delaware Co-op, Bill Andrews says, ” I’m hoping new technologies will help keep the prices down a little bit but also give us some additional tools other than solar or wind to generate carbon free energy.”

Delaware Rep. Tim Dukes, who did not sponsor the bill said, “I just hope 10, 15 years from now we can look back and say that was a good move.” He adds, “I hope that I’m wrong on this one for the sake of working people all over the state of Delaware.”

Senate Bill 33, is waiting for Governor John Carney’s signature before officially being enacted in the state of Delaware. Andrews also asks Delaware residents to stay in contact with their local electric company, to meet the needs of customers while also finding more ways to obtain clean energy
