ITC Holdings Corp. wins public utility status in Wisconsin

Sponsored by

ITC Holdings Corp. said the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) approved its applications to become an authorized public utility holding company in the state and for its operating unit ITC Midwest LLC to become a Wisconsin public utility.


The approvals issued by the PSCW on May 7 represent ITC Midwest's first step toward developing its portion of a regional transmission project in Wisconsin and Iowa called multi-value project No. 5 by the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO).

This project, a new 345 kV line from the Dubuque, Iowa area to the Madison, Wisconsin area, was identified because it is expected to improve service reliability, reduce system congestion and facilitate the interconnection of lower-cost generation resources in the region. The project is a reflection of ITC's continuing efforts to facilitate the development of regional transmission projects.

Based in Novi, Michigan, ITC invests in the electric transmission grid to improve reliability, expand access to markets, lower the overall cost of delivered energy and allow new generating resources to interconnect to its transmission systems. ITC's regulated operating subsidiaries include ITC Transmission, Michigan Electric Transmission Co., ITC Midwest and ITC Great Plains. Through these units, ITC owns and operates high-voltage transmission facilities in Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma, serving a combined peak load exceeding 26,000 megawatts along 15,000 circuit miles of transmission line.
