In February 2010, Governor Markell issued Executive Order No. 18, a broad initiative intended to make the state government of Delaware a leader by example in clean energy and sustainability. The order includes a provision directing executive branch state agencies to procure at least 20% of their annual electric demand from renewable energy resources by Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 and 30% by FY 2013. The Delaware Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is directed to use procurement strategies that maximize clean and renewable energy purchases and minimize costs with achieving the targets. The OMB is required to maximize the stabilization of energy costs through the use of offshore wind as the resource is being developed. Executive branch state agencies, offices, and departments are also directed to maximize the use of local distributed generation technologies at state facilities. The OMB, in consultation with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC)
