ITC Great Plains LLC, in conjunction with Sunflower Electric Power Corp. and Midwest Energy Inc., has placed Phase II of the KETA high-voltage electric transmission project into service, marking completion of the project.

The 227-mile, 345 kV line from Spearville, Kan., to Axtell, Neb., entered service nearly six months ahead of the original schedule, and at a cost well below the original estimate, ITC says. Phase I of the project entered service in June.

"As the demand to export and import both base load and renewable energy continues to increase, state-of-the-art transmission lines like the KETA project are critical to the continued delivery of reliable, affordable energy in our region and across the nation," says Stuart Lowry, president and CEO of Sunflower Electric Power Corp. and Mid-Kansas Electric Co.
