Texas regulators rejected NextEra Energy Inc.’s $18 billion bid to buy the state’s largest transmission operator, Oncor Electric Delivery Co., for a second time.

The Public Utility Commission of Texas first blocked the deal in April. On Wednesday, commissioners adopted an order that denied NextEra’s request for a rehearing on the merger.
