Seaford hopes agreement will provide new income
Seaford's City Council members voted to proceed with a plan that would put the city
in partnership with a utilities company in the generation of electricity.
Council members hope that the partnership will eventually provide a new source of
revenue for the city.
David H. Thomas, power manager for Seaford, was present at the most recent City
Council meeting. He has been talking with representatives from Chesapeake Utilities
about an agreement that would have Chesapeake purchasing three generators that would
be installed in the city's power plant along the Nanticoke River. City employees
would operate the generators and the two partners would share the profits from the
sale of electric in the deregulated market.
