DOVER, Del. - The Delaware General Assembly is taking up Senate Joint Resolution 1, signaling opposition to putting money toward the Artificial Island transmission project.
According to the resolution, the cost of the project is estimated at $280 million. Residents would reportedly be forced to pay an additional $2 to $4 on their monthly electric bills.
A recent ruling from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission requires that Delaware customers and other Delmarva customers pay for the majority of the costs despite receiving only a part of the benefit.
Both Governor Carney and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan have announced their opposition to the project.
