Lindsay Leveen, whose blog posts have been featured on CRI’s blog in the past, spoke to Rick Jensen on Friday about Bloom Energy. He believes if a significant number of Delmarva Power customers complain about Bloom they will be forced to re-open the issue. One of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, Fuel Cell Energy Inc., was granted standing to continue the lawsuit. John Nichols, Middletown resident and concerned citizen, was denied standing by the Public Service Commission and the Delaware District Court.
I appeared again on Delaware radio. Link is below
I promised I would post the link for DELMARVA customers to complain to their Public Service Commission for the overcharge on natural gas in BLOOMDOGGLE by Bloom Energy.
Here is the complaint form link
This is how to fill out the complaint form
Has utility been contacted? click yes
Utility Contact Name: Todd Goodman
In the Complaint Details section copy and paste or write: (for computer beginners: to copy and paste use your mouse to click on the section you want to copy until it turns blue. Click on the right side of your computer mouse and when you see the choice to ‘copy’ click copy and then in the complaint section click inside the box and then right click so that a box comes up. Look for the word ‘paste’ and click on that. If you can manage, hold down CTRL and C together to copy, and CTRL and V to paste).
DELMARVA has been billing for more than the permitted amount of natural gas for electrical energy from the Bloom Energy Servers at Brookside and Red Lion. The maximum permitted quantity of natural gas is 6.6 million BTU per mwh and DELMARVA has billed as high as 7.19 million BTU per mwh. This is an overbilling to all of DELMARVA’s customers.
In the Response From Utility copy and paste or type in:
We have no involvement in DSG’s air permitting process with DNREC. Emission permitting issues are between DSG and DNREC.
Delmarva and DSG are both required to comply with the QFCP Tariff, however. There are heat rate provisions in the Tariff, and DSG has operated within those heat rate Tariff provisions. Delmarva’s obligations are well established within the terms of the QFCP legislation and the Tariff. We will continue to comply with those obligations. Taking the actions that your email requests would constitute a violation of both the QFCP legislation and the QFCP Tariff.
I suggest 200,000 DELMARVA customers all fill out the complaint form. This may light some natural gas under the DE PSC.
