Electricity transmission utility ITC Great Plains LLC wants to add five more high-voltage lines, including two in Oklahoma, the company said Wednesday in a proposal with a regional transmission organization.

ITC Great Plains filed a proposal with the Southwest Power Pool to add high-voltage transmission lines that would carry electricity from the western part of the regional grid to the eastern part.

ITC's proposal consists of five 345-kilovolt transmission lines in seven states.

One would start in western Oklahoma and travel across the northern section of the state to south-central Missouri. Another would start in west Texas, cross into southern Oklahoma and end in southwest Arkansas. Other lines would go from Kansas to Missouri; Kansas to Iowa; and Nebraska to Iowa.

The company submitted the proposal as part of SPP's 20-year plan to add more high-voltage transmission lines. The plan, called Integrated Transmission Planning Year 20 Assessment, should be finalized by July.
