Power flows to people through a three-part system: from power plants and other sources where electricity is generated; through transmission lines that carry the power at high voltages over long distances; and finally, into smaller, local wires known as distribution lines that bring electricity into our homes and other buildings. At ITC, we build, operate and maintain the high-voltage transmission infrastructure that holds this three-part system together, moving power from where it’s generated to where it’s needed – acting much like the country’s network of highways.
Our company’s sole focus on electricity transmission (we don’t own generating plants or purchase or sell electricity in the energy markets) gives us a unique, neutral view of the electric grid and its current and future needs. We are actively involved in planning an integrated energy network to serve our customers, communities and the greater grid.
