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.
The Spearville-Axtell line, also known as the KETA Project, is a 345,000 volt (345kV) transmission line that will improve the reliability and efficiency of the regional grid and make more affordable energy available.
The 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.
The Hugo-to-Valliant Project is an approximately 18-mile, 345,000 volt transmission line that will run from a new substation located at the Hugo power plant west of Fort Towson, Oklahoma, to an existing substation southeast of Valliant.
