Nearly 300 Bloom Energy employees in Newark joined Delaware U.S.  Sen. Tom  Carper on Friday  to  mark the passage of legislation that restored clean energy investment tax credits.

A drafting error in legislation enacted in 2015   excluded extensions of clean energy investment tax credits.

Senator Carper  worked to restore the credits, which were included in the bipartisan spending deal passed on February 9.

Bloom produces fuel cells that are usually fueled by natural gas. 

The plant came to Delaware, thanks to an agreement that uses Bloom fuel cells to feed electricity into the Delmarva Power system.

The cost of that power has triggered controversy over the agreement.

Bloom’s plant is located on the University of Delaware’s STAR campus, the former Chrysler assembly plant.
