Plans and proposals for the transmission system
For planning purposes, American Transmission Co. divides our service area into five zones representing distinct geographic or usage areas. Within each zone, we compile and assess the transmission system needs.
Network and asset renewal projects have targeted in-service dates that are designed to address system limitations and condition needs. The network projects are classified into one of three possible categories – Planned, Proposed or Provisional, depending upon the stage of the project.
|Status of ATC planning activities||Studies complete||Studies not complete||Studies not complete|
|Application for regulatory approval||Application pending or issued||None||None|
|Project status||Project in construction planning phase or under construction||Project identified as preferred alternative||Project is not necessarily the preferred project alternative|
|Asset-renewal projects generally fall into the Provisional or Planned categories.|
