The line would have stretched form West Virginia to Maryland and northern Virginia. The company, PJM Interconnection, says it is needed to prevent brownouts and blackouts.
The company says the lingering bad economy is to blame for the delay, but opponents, like Keryn Newman, argue the new line was never justified to begin with.

Newman has a pending lawsuit against the company for charging rate-payers 14.3 percent of the cost of the project annually.
