A new federal proposal to help electricity flow more freely could help the energy-choked East Coast. But it could also infuriate landowners, who have traditionally gotten their way in fights against utilities in Delaware.

New jobs could come from alternative energy sources, including wind turbines and other alternative energy sources, Leavitt said.
