Here you can see some of the lines entering and exiting the substation. The overbuild is 13800 delta, and the underbuild is 4800 delta.

Really? That huge thing just to drop 13.8kV to 4.8kV??!!! That's the size of a 69kV sub!

Yup! On many parts of the grid, Connecticut Light & Power uses 13.8kV and 27.6kV for subtransmission to feed 4.8kV substations. Quite an old fashioned design for today's standards!
