Salt River Project

As Michigan continues to transition to a cleaner portfolio of power generation resources, additional transmission capacity will be needed to promote the continued reliability of the bulk power system and support the interconnection of new generation resources.

The J717 and J728 Generator Interconnection Projects will Connect 386 MW of wind generation to ITC’s Michigan Electric Transmission Company, LLC (METC) system. To support the interconnection, ITC constructed a new substation, called Salt River, in Warren Twp. The substation connects to the Warren – Bullock 138,000 volt (138 kV) transmission line. Construction began in Q1 2020 and was completed in Q3 2020.

The J717 & J728 projects are an example of ITC’s ongoing commitment to the operational efficiency and reliability of Michigan’s high-voltage transmission grid. The company has invested $5 billion in capital project maintenance and transmission infrastructure improvements in Michigan since 2003. These investments are improving the reliability and safety of the transmission infrastructure while ensuring its ability to meet new energy demands.
