ITC Great Plains, a subsidiary of Novi, Mich.-headquartered ITC Holdings Corp., has announced that the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) approved its Application for Certificate of Convenience and Authority.

This limited certificate gives ITC Great Plains the authority to operate as a utility in the state of Kansas and move forward in its effort to construct, own, operate and maintain bulk electric transmission functions, ITC says.

"We are committed to Kansas and support Governor Kathleen Sebelius's call for 10 percent of the state's electricity to come from renewable resources by 2010 and 20 percent by 2020, and we believe that transmission infrastructure is an important component to the equation," states Carl A. Huslig, president of ITC Great Plains. "The construction of new transmission lines is critical to address existing electric bottlenecks and ensure that Kansas can capitalize on its wind resource capability to make wind energy a reality by allowing it to reach the end-use consumers reliably and efficiently."
