Bloom Energy will soon be installing 30 MW-worth of Bloom Boxes in Delaware in what will be the company’s largest project yet. Delaware regulators just approved the plan that calls for a factory to be built for the fuel-cell boxes.  State utility Delmarva Power will raise a large portion of the funds required to finance the project by adding a $1.34-per-month surcharge to its customers’ bills.  That surcharge will add up to about $100 million over the next 20 years. The state is also offering $18 million in incentives and the project hopes to receive federal grants as well. Bloom Energy has already found customers in Google , eBay, Adobe, AT&T and through pilot projects with utilities PG&E, Southern California Edison and Tennessee’s EPB, but none of these projects come close to the Delaware deal that could grow to as much as 50 MW. Beyond a cleaner source of energy, the project will bring Delaware 900 new jobs at the factory and $300 million in annual economic activity. via Greentech Media
