A generalization of the U(1) gauge symmetry group by permutation of the generator and the unity is proposed. Thus a commutative extension of the symmetry group is obtained. The two-dimensional matrix representation of this group contains matrices with determinants both 1 and −1. The aim of the present work consists in establishing the necessity of existence of so-called imaginary charges and electromagnetic fields with negative energy density. Some cosmological issues of the existence of such fields are discussed.
