Until now, fuel cell manufacturer Bloom Energy was a lone wolf in the state’s renewable energy program.
On Wednesday, a federal lawsuit was settled between the state and Bloom’s Connecticut competitor, FuelCell Energy, Inc. The latter had previously claimed that a 2011 Delaware amendment “discriminated against out-of-state business,” according to the News Journal.
Needless to say, FuelCell Energy folks are pretty pleased with the outcome of the settlement.

Out-of-state fuel cell manufacturers will be allowed to compete in Delaware’s renewable energy program, according to a settlement reached between a competitor of Bloom Energy, Gov. Jack Markell and state utility officials.
