Value of ITC Study
ITC has long held that our investments in transmission improve service reliability, optimize the delivery of renewables and enable efficient wholesale electricity markets. So we presented the challenge of quantifying that value to a global consulting firm, ICF International. ICF studied our capital investments from 2008 to 2014 and concluded that our investments had positive financial impacts on reliability, renewable energy integration and market efficiency. Learn more.
