On March 22, 2011, the Public Service Commission promulgated new rules through Order Number 7933 implementing the state’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards Act (26 Del.C. §§351-364 (2006 Supp.)), as amended by the state legislature in 2010. The law generally requires that a minimum percentage of the electricity that retail electric suppliers and municipal electric companies sell to Delaware end-users must be from eligible energy resources, as set by the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS). Reflecting those 2010 amendments, the new regulations include two provisions providing incentives for the purchase of equipment that is manufactured in the state or installed using Delaware workers. The relevant sections read as follows:

3.2.10 A Retail Electricity Supplier or a Rural Electric Cooperative shall receive an additional 10% credit toward meeting the RPS for solar or wind energy installations sited in Delaware provided that a minimum of 50% of the cost of the renewable energy equipment, inclusive of mounting components, are manufactured in Delaware.

3.2.11 A Retail Electricity Supplier or a Rural Electric Cooperative shall receive an additional 10% credit toward meeting the RPS for solar or wind energy installations sited in Delaware provided that the facility is constructed and/or installed with a minimum of 75% in-state workforce.
