Merchant/Contracted Transmission

ITC believes in a comprehensive planning approach to developing HVDC solutions in support of the AC infrastructure that ensures ongoing reliability, security and the ultimate cost-effective delivery of energy. 

International Grid Development

ITC applies its expertise in solving energy challenges to address transmission needs beyond the domestic footprint.

U.S. Grid Development

ITC works across all RTOs and non-RTO service territories, to identify partnerships and strategic business alliances with existing transmission owners (municipal, cooperative or investor-owned utilities).



ITC works with energy partners to identify commercial development opportunities to build new transmission lines required for improving reliability, reducing cost of delivered power and accessing renewable energy sources.

How ITC Develops the Grid


ITC’s track record of success is demonstrated by the successful acquisitions of ITCTransmission, METC and ITC Midwest.


ITC Great Plains’ green field development in Kansas and Oklahoma marked the creation of the first new utility in America in 100 years.

Lake Erie Connector

The Lake Erie Connector is a proposed 1,000 MW, bi-directional, high-voltage direct current (HVDC) underwater contracted transmission line that will provide the first direct link between the markets of the Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) and PJM Interconnection (PJM). 
This project will help deliver more affordable, cost-effective electricity to customers as a result of increased energy trading between these power markets.
