About Us

This is the investor website for the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). For bondholder convenience, we have created separate sites for two different debt programs: the Lower Colorado River Authority debt program and the LCRA Transmission Services Corporation debt program. Please use the drop-down menu for details for each debt program.

LCRA TSC is a nonprofit corporation created by LCRA to act on LCRA's behalf pursuant to Chapter 152, Texas Water Code, as amended, to conduct LCRA's electric transmission business. On Jan. 1, 2002, LCRA transferred ownership of its transmission facilities to LCRA TSC to satisfy the state’s requirements.LCRA TSC owns and operates all of the electric transmission and transformation assets previously owned by LCRA  as well as transmission and transformation assets constructed and financed by LCRA TSC  or acquired by LCRA TSC with other available funds. LCRA personnel, including primarily those that operate LCRA's transmission department, are responsible for performing all of LCRA TSC's activities pursuant to a services agreement between LCRA TSC and LCRA. Since its creation, LCRA TSC has invested more than $2.4 billion in transmission projects to meet the growing demand for electricity, improve reliability, connect new generating capacity, address congestion problems that affect the competitive market and help move renewable energy to the market. LCRA TSC plans to invest about $1.2 billion over the next five years to build new transmission facilities and improve existing ones.
