CL&P 13.8kV & 4.8kV - Bristol, CT

CL&P 13.8kV & 4.8kV - Bristol, CT
Here's another view of the 13.8/4.8kV line featured in the previous photos. Both the 13.8 and 4.8 are ungrounded delta.

This pole here dates back to before WWII and features its original crossarm on the 13800 with multiparts and an angle iron brace.

This line really is a blast from the past when you look at it. How often does somebody run across a 15kV-class subtransmission line with a 5kV-class delta connected underbuild nowadays? This old 13.8/4.8kV stuff is classic CL&P...they've been using this group of voltages for over 90 years now!

I do like that line in Westhope too by the way. Reminds me of how the 13200V lines in Torrington used to be back when they had 4160 Y underneath them. I think that was the lowest subtransmission voltage that I ever saw.

Reminds me of a BGE pole in Crofton.
