CL&P 4.8kV - Watertown, CT

CL&P 4.8kV - Watertown, CT
Here is a corner pole on this oddball 4.8 kV single phase branch line:

CL&P 4.8kV - Watertown, CT

Note the use of 15 kV-rated porcelain insulators with jacketed conductors. This does not conform to CL&P's current construction practices. CL&P prefers to use Hendrix visetops with jacketed conductors so they don't have to strip the rubber off in order to tie on a porcelain insulator.

My best guess is that this line was erected by a third-party contractor working for CL&P.
