Delmarva Power has filed a request with the Delaware Public Service Commission (PSC) to approve an amended agreement with NRG Bluewater Wind that delays the guaranteed delivery date for power from the planned offshore wind park by two years.
If approved by the PSC, the new deadline for NRG Bluewater Wind to install and begin operating the wind farm would be Dec. 1, 2016. It previously was set at Dec. 1, 2014. The original agreement was signed and announced in June 2008.
‘While we fully expect to have the Mid-Atlantic Wind Park built and online before 2016, this amendment simply adjusts the timeline for circumstances beyond our control,’ says Peter Mandelstam, president of NRG Bluewater Wind, who cited potential delays in the federal permitting process that could impact the construction timeline.
