Welcome to the Lake Erie Connector

ITC recently acquired the development and ownership rights to the Lake Erie Connector.

This would be the first direct connection between Ontario and PJM. The HVDC project would connect generation in Ontario, Canada to the PJM network via Erie West, Pennsylvania through submarine transmission cable in Lake Erie. 

For more information on this project, please see the project profile found here.

ITC continually seeks appropriate opportunities to strengthen the electric transmission grid to the benefit of end use customers.  This opportunity is still in the early stages of development but would be ITC’s first high voltage contracted DC transmission line.  ITC has long recognized the advantages of HVDC and its suitability for specific situations. The Lake Erie Connector is an example of the type of strategic investment that can provide significant benefits to consumers, businesses and local communities in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.

This project would facilitate the efficient flow of power between Ontario and the Eastern United States, providing significant benefits to consumers, businesses and local communities in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.

As this project continues to move forward, please check back to this website where more information will be posted to keep stakeholders and interested parties informed.
