Killdeer-Hampton Tap 345 kV Electric Transmission Project (MPV 4)

Reliable, sustainable, efficient energy is critical to the quality of life we enjoy. To improve electric reliability, enable new electric generating sources to deliver energy to customers, and meet the region’s growing energy needs, ITC Midwest (ITC) built a new high-voltage electric transmission line in north central Iowa. The Killdeer-Hampton Tap is part of a network of new 345 kV transmission lines constructed by ITC Midwest to serve the region. This new ITC line runs approximately 30 miles from ITC’s Killdeer substation southwest of Mason City Iowa, to interconnect with a proposed MidAmerican Energy line in Franklin County.

MISO, the independent transmission organization for the 11-state region that includes Iowa, has studied and designated 17 transmission projects as “Multi-Value Projects” (MVPs). The Killdeer-Hampton Tap line is a portion of MVP 4, one of those projects. The MVP transmission lines will bring four major benefits to northern Iowa and the rest of the MISO region: improved reliability, expanded access to generation sources, increased system efficiency, and economic investment.  The Killdeer-Hampton Tap segment of MVP 4 was completed and energized in August 2017.
