Delmarva Power is getting a $15.1 million rate increase from the Delaware Public Service Commission.

The vote was 4-to-0.

That gives the company a profit margin of 9.7 percent.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that it is still not clear what the increase will mean for individual customers.

 

          There will be an outside investigation into the planning, real estate, a record keeping Practices at the Delaware Department of Transportation.

            The probe comes after evidence of poor document security and unexplained gaps in key files…that could impact millions of taxpayer dollars.
