In order to improve the reliability of high-voltage electrical service in the Kalamazoo area, ITC Michigan, through its Michigan Electric Transmission Company (METC) subsidiary, is constructing a new substation and two new transmission lines in Almena and Oshtemo townships. This project will reduce the demand on the area’s main high-voltage substation by providing an additional source of energy for the region. In July 2013 the Michigan Public Service Commission granted a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity establishing an approved route for the transmission lines. Construction is underway with an in-service date of spring 2016.
