With the recent winter cold snaps electricity bills are expected to jump for many on Delmarva.

And Delmarva Power is urging customers to use a number of programs that could ease the pain of paying those bills.

Among them are a variety of individually tailored payment arrangements that would bring customer accounts up-to-date over a period of time.

Another allows customers to even out their payments to avoid seasonal peaks in the electric bills.


In Annapolis the General Assembly has finally handed Governor Martin O’Malley a victory in his search to bring the wind industry to Maryland.

The House of Delegates approved a Senate version of the legislation on a final vote of 88-to-48.

It now goes to Governor Martin O’Malley for his signature.

Supporters say it will help diversify the state’s sources of clean and renewable energy.

The measure would require electricity suppliers to produce at least 2.5 percent of their power from offshore wind by 2017.
