Maryland Public Service Commission Staff
Under Maryland’s Offshore Wind Energy Act of 2013, § 7-704.2(f) of the PUA requires the Commission to issue a comprehensive set of Regulations implementing the Act by July 1, 2014. The Commission's commercial and technical advisors have prepared this report to make certain that the Commission's offshore wind procurement, evaluation, and selection process (i) is as fair, transparent, and workable as possible, (ii) leads to robust and competitive bids, and (iii) preserves the ratepayer protections defined in the Act.
