Governor Carney’s Statement on Artificial Island Project Recommendations

WILMINGTON, Del.Governor John Carney issued the following statement on recommendations Friday from the PJM Transmission Expansion Advisory Committee:

“This project, as currently financed, would place an unjust burden on Delaware residential and industrial ratepayers. Delaware businesses and families would see higher monthly electric bills, and receive next to nothing in return in the way of a direct benefit. I intend to work with members of Delaware’s federal delegation, the Public Service Commission, our Public Advocate, and the General Assembly to oppose the current cost allocation as set by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. This is not a good deal for Delaware.”
