Court Rejects Challenge Over Delaware Utility Renewable Energy
DOVER, Del. (AP) — A judge has rejected a challenge by state environmental officials to rules issued by Delaware utility regulators regarding renewable energy requirements.
The judge on Monday ruled that the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has no standing to challenge the regulations issued by the Public Service Commission.
The ruling is the latest development in a long-running legal dispute over regulations regarding how minimum renewable energy purchase requirements for Delaware electric utilities can be frozen if they become too costly.
A spokesman for the state environmental agency say it is reviewing the decision.
