Our Project Philosophy

In developing system expansion, ITC has a number of goals:

  • Maintaining safety
  • Improving reliability
  • Relieving congestion
  • Reducing system losses

Our first focus is on replacing aging transmission facilities and equipment across our service territory in Michigan and other Midwestern states. Since the company’s inception in 2003, ITC has invested nearly $3.2 billion in system upgrades and maintenance. This investment has resulted in increased reliability, a reduction in energy losses and has helped pave the way for the entrance of renewable resources.

At ITC, seeking the innovative solution to reliable, responsible, low-cost electricity is utmost priority.

Elm Creek SummitThe Elm Creek to Summit project will improve the reliability of the grid in central Kansas, allowing the grid to continue to meet required standards of reliability.  

VPlanThe Kansas V-Plan is a high-voltage transmission line designed to connect eastern and western Kansas to improve electric reliability and enable energy developers to tap into the transmission grid, further establishing a competitive energy market in the state. 

Hugo ValliantThe Hugo-to-Valliant Project is an approximately 18-mile, 345,000 volt (345kV) transmission line from a new substation located at the Hugo power plant west of Fort Towson, Okla., to an existing substation southeast of Valliant.
