The Taskforce works to help the state meet the Renewable Portfolio Standards set by the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards Act. It is charged with examining the current state of Delaware’s renewable energy market, developing recommendations for renewable energy credit trading mechanisms, and finding ways to support the growth of renewable energy resources in Delaware.

The Taskforce reports its findings and proposes regulations as appropriate.
