Working To Help Transform
Founded in 2008, Cross Texas Transmission is a designated transmission service provider that constructs, owns and operates transmission facilities and lines to help deliver energy to homes and businesses across Texas. Based in Austin with an additional office in Amarillo, Cross Texas Transmission’s statewide presence serves to support several regions across the Lone Star State.
Since our inception we have successfully developed more than 230 miles of high voltage transmission lines that will allow for the delivery of several thousand megawatts of power. This investment has fueled several billion dollars of further investment in the state.
Supported by a cost-effective transmission strategy, Cross Texas Transmission develops regional partnerships with other utilities and co-ops, such as Garland Power & Light. These joint ventures enable the development of system-wide transmission infrastructure guided by regional planning processes.
Cross Texas Transmission operates as a subsidiary of parent company, LS Power. Founded in 1990, LS Power is a generation and transmission entity that operates from coast to coast. The national company has offices in New York, New Jersey, Missouri and California, and has developed, constructed, managed or acquired more than 470 miles of transmission infrastructure.
Driven by a skilled team of executives, engineers and system planners, Cross Texas Transmission is adept at steering the complex landscape of Texas power transmission – from land acquisition and zoning to environmental permitting, engineering, finance, regulations and construction management.
As a company known for being good stewards of the land, Cross Texas Transmission makes as small an impact as possible on the communities and environment, and abides by all regulatory requirements, including safety and environmental procedures. We work with a number of organizations to ensure that impacted areas are restored to their original – if not better – condition.
And as good neighbors, we also make ourselves readily available to property owners to answer any questions and address any concerns.
