The state of Delaware legislated requirements that led to Delmarva Power signing long term contracts for high cost electric generation sources. This included the purchase of fuel cells from Bloom Energy, Inc., and earlier than needed contracts for high priced solar and onshore wind resources.

We also want steps taken to rebate the excess costs from existing contracts. The following steps should fix the problem:
