DOVER, Del. (AP) - A federal agency has denied Delaware’s request to reduce the cost of building a power line connecting the Artificial Island nuclear complex to the state.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/1SMHzNo ) reports that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s recent decision means that Delaware residential and commercial electricity customers will bear the cost of the $272 million project, even though Delaware officials say the power line will mostly benefit New Jersey’s ratepayers.

The Delaware Public Service Commission and its Maryland counterpart had filed a complaint over the proposal in August.

Costs for the overall project, will be borne by Delaware consumers, including customers of Public Service Electric & Gas and Delmarva Power & Light. Artificial Island is co-owned by PSE&G; and Exelon, the parent of Delmarva Power.
