I can count a total of three idled three-banks on this line here, which are connected to a peanut processing facility.

Seasonal loads perhaps? Oahe Electric Cooperative near Pierre kills all their transformer banks serving irrigation pumps between harvest and planting time.

You hit the nail right on the head! Peanuts typically aren't harvested until the beginning of the fall season. I bet you these cans will be hooked back up come September.

Gulf Power ran 46kV for a while...seems to be a more popular voltage here in the western portion of the panhandle.

Usually 69kv seems to be the lowest voltage for transmission.

The 46 kV portion on some of these poles has been rebuilt.
