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.

Transmission partner

Looking to develop transmission?

Partner with a leader — like the largest utility in the nation, with more than seven million customers, and the nation’s first transmission-only utility with a perfect track record of successfully completed transmission projects.

Together DATC partners own and operate approximately 10 percent of the nation’s transmission system, more than 41,000 miles of lines, and have invested $7.5 billion in new transmission infrastructure in the last 10 years – more than any other transmission owner/operator in the country.

Financial Strength

Transmission is one of the most capital-intensive industries in the U.S. Unlike investors from outside the industry, DATC understands needs of transmission investment throughout the project life cycle. Transmission investment requires significant resources, and DATC partners have strong credit ratings and access to capital.

Ready to Partner with You

From concept to completion, we know transmission. Building new transmission infrastructure is challenging. It takes collaborative planning, public and stakeholder outreach, and relationships with regulators. DATC is ready to partner with stakeholders to achieve transmission goals, including:

  • Transmission planning
  • Building and facilitating regulatory relationships
  • Navigating the regulatory process
  • Stakeholder outreach
  • Real estate oversight, including easement acquisition
  • Transmission line and substation design (AC and HVDC)
  • Project management
  • Commissioning
  • Transmission system and line operation
