Bloom Energy

Some Delaware lawmakers and Delmarva Power ratepayers say it’s time to re-examine an agreement with Bloom Energy forcing a controversial $5 fee on to Delmarva utility bills.

Sen. Tom Carper (D-Delaware) says restoration of federal tax credits will help Bloom Energy create hundreds more jobs in Delaware. But the company has only created about a third of the jobs it promised to bring the state five years ago.

Bloom Energy is returning more than 1.5 million dollars in incentives it received for a promise to create hundreds of jobs.
