The electric bills in Delaware could shoot up again.

Delmarva Power has filed a request with the state Public Service Commission to hike rates to a total of $63 million.

The company says that for the Christiana-area residents their bills could go up another $10 for an average of $151 a month.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that they could go up again by another $13 a month for the transmission line to connect the Artificial Island Nuclear Power Plant in New Jersey with Delaware.
