Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA
Here's a nice armless oldie. This stuff that Georgia Power put up back in the late 1950's and 1960's was built to last forever.

Reminds me of a similar GA Power pole that got upgrades. Georgia Power 12.47kV - Brunswick, GA

Yeah, that's definitely GA Power you got there! I wonder if the line you pictured is running at 24.9?

It runs 12.5kV because of the size of the arresters and there was also an LM can on this line.

Oh I see now. Those arresters do look a bit small for 25kV.

They made L-M obround cans for 14400 primary by the way. CL&P/HELCO had some on 13200 delta primary before too.

Interesting how this armless construction predates chicken wing and stand-off insulator brackets!

It's certainly pretty early in the armless age--they were still using brown insulators and black transformers when this went up, so it was definitely before 1970, likely before 1968.
