Delaware currently produces minimal renewable energy, but plans to increase renewable energy generation are in development. In May 2009, the U.S. Department of the Interior approved Bluewater Wind to build two meteorological towers off the coasts of New Jersey and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, that will allow the company to map weather patterns for determining the location of an offshore wind farm. In July 2007, Delaware expanded its renewable portfolio standard to require that 2 percent of the state’s electricity be generated from solar photovoltaic sources in addition to 18 percent from other renewable sources by 2019.
