How transmission works

  1. 1

    Electricity is generated.
  2. 2

    Transformer increases voltage of electricity.
  3. 3

    Electricity travels through transmission lines.
  4. 4

    Transformer decreases voltage of electricity.
  5. 5

    Electricity travels through collection lines.
  6. 6

    Electricity is delivered to customers.

Why Invenergy Transmission

Over 20 years, we’ve developed thousands of miles of power infrastructure, ensuring affordable, reliable clean energy delivery to millions of homes and businesses. Today, we’re a leader in developing some of America’s most ambitious clean energy transmission projects, using state-of-the-art high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology.  
Similar to how power adapters on our cell phones and laptop chargers convert electricity from alternating current to direct current, HVDC transmission lines can convert power between alternating and direct current, on a much larger scale. HVDC lines are safe, efficient and cost-effective for delivering large amounts of electricity over long distances. They can transfer significantly more power with greater efficiency on a smaller footprint than alternating-current transmission lines. They can instantly control the direction of power flow on the line, boosting electric grid reliability. 

Experts project that the U.S. will need up to a 60% increase in electrical transmission capacity by 2030 to better distribute high-quality, low-cost wind and solar power – often generated a great distance away – to the regions where power is needed.

Featured projects

Grain Belt Express
To serve current and future power needs through the heart of the Midwest, Invenergy Transmission developed the Grain Belt Express transmission line. Designed to carry affordable, reliable power to millions of homes and businesses across the Midwest, this $7 billion electric transmission infrastructure project will route 100% domestic, clean energy across 800 miles and four states — Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana. This landmark project will transform the energy infrastructure of the United States, bringing economic opportunity and energy security to these regions for generations to come.
