Delaware Governor Establishes Offshore Wind Working Group

Sept. 4, 2017

The Smyrna-Clayton Sun-Times reports that Delaware Governor John Carney signed an executive order establishing an offshore wind working group to study potential “environmental and economic development benefits of offshore wind development to serve Delaware.” The working group will begin meeting in October and will plan to submit a report to the governor by December 15 that makes recommendations on plans to develop job opportunities in the offshore wind industry. The group will also draft any necessary legislation, including possible amendments to Delaware’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards Act.
