About ITC Holdings Corp.

ITC Holdings Corp. is in the business of investing in electricity transmission infrastructure improvements as a means to improve electric reliability, reduce congestion and lower the overall cost of delivered energy.

ITCTransmission and METC operate contiguous, fully-regulated, high-voltage systems in Michigan's Lower Peninsula, an area with a population of approximately 9.8 million people, that transmit electricity to local electricity distribution facilities from generating stations throughout Michigan and surrounding areas. Recently announced subsidiary ITC Grid Development, LLC will focus on partnering with local entities and utilities in regions where significant transmission improvements are needed.
