“This proposal offers an inter-regional planning perspective that is generation-neutral and works within the regional planning process to produce optimal grid performance,” Joseph L. Welch, ITC's chairman, president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “These projects will draw upon ITC's track record as a best-in-class independent transmission developer and operator, as evidenced by the success of our existing projects and partnerships with local utilities in the Great Plains region.”

ITC completed its Hugo to Valiant project in June. The 18-mile, 345-kilovolt line included a new substation and connects Western Farmers Electric Cooperative's Hugo power plant and Valiant in southeastern Oklahoma.
