Offshore wind report says Delaware could procure power at less than half current cost

When it comes to offshore wind, the First State has largely been a spectator in recent years, watching surrounding states ramp up projects – including some off Delaware’s coast – and commit to purchasing wind power while Delaware sits on the sidelines.

But there could be movement on the horizon. A pair of studies offering insight into offshore wind’s economic feasibility and potential environmental impact locally are on the way.

This week, contributor Jon Hurdle examines these studies and what they could mean for getting Delaware in the offshore wind game.

Delaware Public Media's Tom Byrne and contributor Jon Hurdle discuss studies on offshore wind and its potential impact on Delaware.

Surveying stories from southern Delaware with Delaware Independent

There are plenty of stories to tell up and down the First State. So many that no one news operation can get to them all.

And that premise is the reason behind a new partnership between Delaware Public Media and Delaware Independent.

And earlier this week– Delaware Independent’s Andrew Sharp stopped by to chat about some of their recent coverage.
