ITC Great Plains LLC, Sunflower Electric Power Corp. and Mid-Kansas Electric Co. LLC have expanded their partnership agreement for the development of transmission projects in Kansas.

Under the latest agreement, Sunflower and Mid-Kansas granted ITC Great Plains the exclusive option to build transmission projects that Sunflower and Mid-Kansas elect not to construct. These projects could include major regional transmission projects assigned to Sunflower by the regional transmission organization, the Southwest Power Pool, as well as local, lower-voltage transmission projects developed by Sunflower. The initial term of the agreement is 10 years, with ongoing renewal provisions.

This new agreement builds on a similar arrangement the parties reached in 2008 that resulted in Sunflower and Mid-Kansas designating ITC Great Plains to build their portions of the Kansas Electric Transmission Authority project and the Kansas V-Plan transmission project, both of which have received full regulatory approvals and are now either under construction or in the pre-construction phase.
