CL&P 115kV, 27.6kV, & 8.32kV - Oxford, CT

CL&P 115kV, 27.6kV, & 8.32kV  - Oxford, CT
Here are some transmission lines crossing over the Housatonic River from the Stevenson Dam substation. 115kV, and I believe 27.6kV (but perhaps 13.8) cross over the river. The 27.6 feeds multigrounded 8320 distribution though a 3MVA transformer-bank for Seymour and southwest Oxford.

The 115kV lines you see here are on their last legs as well. The line on the towers to the right is going to be demolished and replaced within a year.

Sure will be neat to see what takes their place! Hopefully none of those ugly monopoles where the lighting guard arm also holds the upper most phases. yuuuukkk lol.
