Working To Help Transform
Founded in 2008, Cross Texas Transmission is a designated transmission service provider that constructs, owns and operates transmission facilities and electric 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 320 miles of high voltage transmission lines that will allow for the delivery of several thousand megawatts of power to load centers throughout the state. The construction and operation of this new transmission infrastructure has fueled several billion dollars of further investment in the state.
To support our cost-effective transmission strategy, Cross Texas Transmission also forms regional partnerships with other utilities and co-ops, such as Garland Power & Light. These joint ventures enable the development of system-wide transmission infrastructure upgrades identified by the ERCOT regional planning process.
We operate as an affiliate of our parent company - LS Power. Founded in 1990, LS Power is a generation and transmission company that operates from coast to coast. The company has offices in New York, New Jersey, Missouri and California, and has developed, constructed, managed or acquired more than 650 miles of transmission infrastructure.
Driven by a skilled team of executives, engineers and system planners, Cross Texas Transmission is adept at navigating the complex landscape of Texas power transmission – from land acquisition and zoning to environmental permitting, engineering, project financing, regulation, and construction management.
Cross Texas Transmission is known for being a good steward of the land. Our business and construction operations make as small an impact as possible on the communities and environment we work in. Cross Texas Transmission abides by all federal and state mandated regulatory requirements, including safety and environmental procedures. We work with a number of organizations to ensure that areas impacted by our operations are restored to their original – if not improved – condition.
As good neighbors, we also make ourselves readily available to property owners to answer any questions and address any concerns they may have.
