Newark, Del.-based Delmarva Power recently filed an independent analysis of the proposed 450 MW Bluewater Wind offshore wind farm with the Delaware Public Service Commission.

The analysis was conducted by Pace Global Energy Services, which recently performed an analysis on behalf of the Long Island Power Authority concerning a proposed wind project off the Long Island coast. The proposed Long Island offshore project was canceled due to its excessive cost.

The Pace Global analysis of the proposed Bluewater Wind project concluded that, without escalators, the wind farm would cost Delmarva's Delaware customers about $22 more a month.

Gary Stockbridge, president of Delmarva, says the Pace Global analysis was conducted in a way that minimized any outside influence on the consultant group's report.

"They had no interaction with our existing consultant, all data used was publicly available, and interaction with the company was limited to clarifying questions," says Stockbridge.
