Duke-American Transmission Co.

We bring together the strengths of two leading electric industry companies to build, own and operate new electric transmission facilities throughout North America.

Routing and siting

The process for identifying routes for a new transmission line is a sensitive one that involves significant information gathering and evaluation. Input from local and state officials, resource agencies, landowners and the public also contributes to route development. DATC project teams work to identify and review sensitive environmental areas.

DATC project teams consider the following when developing route options:

  • Geographic or land use based regional constraints
  • Routing opportunities, including existing transmission lines and federal energy corridors.
  • Land use areas, such as private, tribal and agency managed lands.
