PJM has decided to move ahead with the power line project connecting the Artificial Island nuclear power plant with the Red Lion substation that will bring electricity to New Jersey and Delaware.

But the company’s board also voted to get more information on how to allocate the cost of the project.

Delaware officials complained that the state’s residents will pay for 90% of the project but only receive 10% of its benefits.

The company says Delaware customers would only get hit with 60% of the cost.

PJM says that the $165 million project is needed to replace outdated power lines on Artificial Island to avoid potential blackouts.
