PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES
ITC’s capital projects range in size from small-scale substation upgrades to large-scale green field transmission projects that serve as the backbone of regional electricity systems.
Four Mile – Wealthy Rebuild
ITC Michigan, through its Michigan Electric Transmission Company, LLC (METC) subsidiary, is upgrading electricity transmission infrastructure in Michigan. ITC is rebuilding approximately eight miles of the Four Mile – Wealthy 138,000 volt (138 kV) transmission line, replacing the existing structures with new single-circuit monopoles designed for higher-rated conductor (wire) and optical ground wire (OPGW). OPGW…
The Kansas V-Plan is a high-voltage transmission line connecting eastern and western Kansas. The project improves electric reliability and enables energy developers to tap into the transmission grid, further establishing a competitive energy market in the state. In cooperation with Sunflower Electric Power Corporation and Mid-Kansas Electric Company, ITC Great Plains designed and constructed the…
Minnesota-Iowa 345 kV Electric Transmission Project (MVP 3)
Following years of planning and construction, ITC Midwest completed and energized a major new, high voltage electric transmission line in 2018. As a 110-mile segment of Multi-Value Project (MVP) 3, the 345,000 volt (345 kV) transmission line connects ITC Midwest’s Lakefield Junction and Huntley substations in southern Minnesota, and the Ledyard switching substation and MidAmerican…

ADDITIONAL PROJECTS BY LOCATIONS
ITC has a long-standing commitment to the non-discriminatory connection of electricity generation sources to the high voltage grid. Access to robust generating sources is a benefit of an efficient energy marketplace. Our approach to building a 21st-century transmission system is demonstrated in our expertise in building large-scale and small-scale transmission projects, all of which help ensure local reliability.
Our ability to plan investment according to a balanced system lifecycle ensures ITC is creating and maintaining a reliable and efficient electric grid. We work to identify issues and needs for creating a robust transmission network, and then we continually monitor demand to ensure the infrastructure can meet consumer needs.
ITC believes in a comprehensive planning approach to developing AC and HVDC solutions in support of the AC infrastructure that ensures ongoing reliability, security and the ultimate cost-effective delivery of energy.
Planning and Siting
At ITC we take a broad, holistic and transparent approach toward transmission planning to benefit all customers. Our proven siting and design process works to mitigate environmental impact, providing power to our direct and indirect customers.
