DOVER, Del. - (AP) - Officials with a regional power grid operator want to greenlight a controversial transmission line project that Delaware and Maryland officials have said would impose unfair costs on their residents while mostly benefiting New Jersey.
Amid criticism and rising costs, the PJM Interconnection board suspended the Artificial Island transmission line project last summer and directed staff to perform an analysis supporting a path forward.
At a meeting Friday, PJM staff recommended moving forward with a 230-kilovolt line from the Artificial Island nuclear complex in southern New Jersey to Delaware to help improve system reliability.
Other recommendations, to be considered at an April 6 board meeting, would shave $140 million off a previous overall cost estimate of $418 million.
Delaware Gov. John Carney nevertheless reiterated his concerns Friday about current cost allocations.
