Why we do it better

Building on what we do best
Since our founding in 2001 as the nation’s first multi-state, transmission-only utility, American Transmission Co. has established a new standard for owning, operating and building electric transmission. We select best-value projects that resolve electric system issues and increase system efficiency. We have invested $3.2 billion in projects in four Midwestern states and improved the reliability of the grid, and are now a $3.6 billion company.

We have saved our customers more than $100 million per year in reduced energy costs while completing projects on time, within budget and according to regulatory requirements. Our track record on more than 60 projects has earned us a reputation for superior expertise in system planning, public outreach, construction, environmental protection and customer service.

Our business model, strong balance sheet and disciplined financial approach put us in a position to grow beyond our base in the Midwest. Our investment-grade debt ratings, consistently strong cash flows and reliable earning potential make us suited for supporting transmission expansion where projects will improve reliability, reduce costs and provide better access to bulk power markets as well as new generating sources.
