ITC Holdings Corp., through its Michigan Electric Transmission Company, LLC (METC) subsidiary, rebuilt approximately six miles of its Verona – Barnum Creek Jct. 138,000 volt (138 kV) transmission line in Calhoun County. The existing structures were replaced with new 230 kV double-circuit structures and conductor (wires), providing greater reliability in southwest Michigan.
The Verona – Barnum Creek Jct. line rebuild is an example of ITC’s ongoing commitment to the operational efficiency and reliability of Michigan’s high-voltage transmission grid. The company has invested more than $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.
