Modernize the Grid

America’s electric transmission grid is operating closer to the edge than ever before. As our lifestyles become increasingly dependent on electricity, we need to make a major investment in a modernized grid to maintain the existing capacity and reliability of the system and to plan for the future. visit

The Value of Transmission

ITC Holdings Corp. is the nation's largest independent electricity transmission company. Our track record and the value of our independent transmission model are clear and demonstrated. In just our first decade of operation, ITC has successfully acquired, integrated and improved the reliability of three transmission businesses. Apart from the systems we’ve acquired and improved, in our first 10 years we pioneered a transmission-only greenfield utility, identified and facilitated critical regional transmission infrastructure, established a portfolio of actionable transmission development projects and partnered with local utilities on transmission projects. ITC continues with its quest to improve power quality for consumers throughout the United States and enhance reliability.

Building a More Secure Grid

ITC has been investing in electric transmission systems since our inception in 2003. Our sole focus continues to be on upgrading and building high voltage transmission systems that are modern, robust and resilient, which is the best protection against unforeseen events. This is an ongoing process, and we continue to work to reach a modernized national power grid.
