ITC has been investing in electric transmission systems since our inception in 2003. Our sole focus continues to be on upgrading and building high-voltage transmission systems that are modern, robust and resilient. A strong grid combined with sound practices around deterrence, detection and mitigation is the best line of defense against unforeseen events. While ITC has made significant strides, we know this is an ongoing process. ITC continues to work to reach a modernized national power grid.

Government and industry partnership dedicated to a resilient grid:

  • A resilient grid is the best line of defense against physical attacks and other events.
  • Development of future standards must be coordinated with existing physical and cyber security policies.
  • Physical security requirements can enhance existing transmission planning standards for bulk-power system facilities.
  • FERC should consider assigning responsibility for the Spare Transformer Equipment Program to NERC.
