Wind Power in Delaware

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

As I picked up my coffee this morning, I was shocked to see that Delmarva Power and Bluewater Wind announced a contract to install wind turbines off the Delaware coast.  This has been an ongoing battle with all the typical negative ads by Delmarva.  I believe Delmarva Power is owned by a huge energy company which owns the power plants under a different name, so they may have a vested interest in natural gas or coal fed plants.

Hopefully the deal will go through and cost overruns stay minimal.  But this has been a political battle, so it's still early to see how this will end up.  It's definitely a step in the right direction though.

Last week, Michelle Rigney passed away from Melanoma at the age of 22.  Very sad.  Some of her friends and family started a facebook group.  She was very active in cancer awareness and co-founded the Delaware Miles for Melanoma group.

According to the American Cancer Society, 1500 per day will die of cancer in the United States.
