Transmission Lines at Dusk

Duke Energy's Commercial Transmission business focuses on transmission projects that increase reliability, reduce congestion on the electric system and integrate renewable energy into the electric grid.

Our business is built on strong partnerships with other proven and experienced transmission companies.

Duke American Transmission Co. (DATC) is a multi-project joint venture between Duke Energy and American Transmission Co., to build, own and operate electric transmission facilities in North America.

DATC projects include:

  • Midwest Transmission Portfolio – a total of seven proposed high-voltage transmission proposed projects in five states (Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio).
  • Zephyr Power Transmission Project – a proposed 850-mile transmission line that would run from Wyoming to Nevada, bringing 2,100 megawatts of Wyoming wind-generated electricity to the Southwest U.S. power grid.
  • Path 15 Transmission Project – an existing 84-mile, 500-kV transmission line in central California.

Pioneer Transmission LLC is a single-project joint venture between Duke Energy and American Electric Power to build a proposed 240-mile, 765-kV transmission line across Indiana that would connect two regional transmission organizations, PJM and MISO.
