Dear Ms. Gray,
I cursorily examined these proposed regulations and found them unintelligible. Sorry, but if you folks want to issue regulations that would affect the pocketbooks of everyone in the state of Delaware, you should explain what you are proposing to do in plain English.
We are already being charged too much to subsidize wind and solar power, all in the name of combatting global warming. There was a charge for over $7 on my last Delmarva Power bill (not to mention another $5 for the qualified fuel cell provider tariff), which I didn't appreciate paying. Even if global warming were a problem, these charges wouldn’t have any material effect on average global temperatures over the next 100 years.
Now, I gather, the idea is to increase these charges by a substantial percentage. Is that correct?
If so, I am steadfastly opposed - as are a lot of Delawareans that I know and respect.
At a minimum, DNREC should seek authorization by the General Assembly for what it is proposing to do rather than relying on its supposed administrative authority.
