DOVER, Del. (AP)- State officials are asking federal regulators to reconsider a recent decision requiring Delaware electricity customers to cover the cost of installing a transmission line that Delaware officials say will largely benefit New Jersey residents.
    
Last month, in response to a complaint from Delaware officials, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission decided that Delaware's residential and commercial electricity customers must bear the cost of the $272 million project connecting the Artificial Island nuclear complex to the state.
    
The Delaware's Public Service Commission, along with Gov. Jack Markell and the state's congressional delegation, last week submitted a formal request for a rehearing to argue their case again.
    
Delaware Public Service Commission Executive Director Bob Howatt says he hopes federal officials will announce their decision in late summer.
