Wind Power in Delaware

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.
