Jan. 18. DEMEC was joined by the Town of Smyrna (DEMEC member community), AMP and NextEra Energy Resources to provide insight on public power benefits, DEMEC’s leadership in advancing renewables in Delaware, and the partnership that facilitated the construction, funding and implementation of the Smyrna Solar project as part of AMP’s Solar Phase II.
