Can anyone explain to me why the Governor is attacking municipalities for having “above market” energy costs when he has spent 3 years pushing for an “above market” off-shore wind farm and has used taxpayer dollars to force Bloom boxes onto Delmarva ratepayers, which are also “above market”? To get the Bloom boxes, he even defined natural gas as a renewable resource at the same time that he has threatened to ban fracking — a process that has driven natural gas prices to record lows, assisted the cost effectiveness of the Delaware City refinery, and created dozens of high-paying manufacturing jobs in the State.
Doesn’t this strike as being a tad bit hypocritical?
I hope that in the next news story on this issue, that the Governor is asked, “Why are you picking on municipalities when you are driving up Delaware’s energy costs on your own? Shouldn’t you fix your house before you complain about others?”
