Escambia River Electric Co-Op 46kV & 12.47kV - Santa Rosa County, FL

Escambia River Electric Co-Op 46kV & 12.47kV - Santa Rosa County, FL
Here's a pretty busy pole outside of a peanut processing facility. Transmission is 46kV; distribution is 12.47kV. Four transformers are tapped off of the 12.47kV distribution underbuild: three for a three-phase service (currently idled) for running motors, and one for a separate single-phase lighting service.

Never knew Florida had a coop!

There are many co-ops scattered throughout the state, especially in the northern portion. Here's a map of them:

It's be neat to get ahold of a copy of the NRECA map, but I'm too cheap to fork over $20 for one. Here's a small version: www.nreca.coop/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/ServiceTerritoryMap.gif Looks like there are only 4 states that have ZERO coops - CT, MA, RI, and NJ.

That's an interesting map there. I never knew that New York had co-ops either. I know that NYSE&G served vast swaths of the state, much of it at 4.8kV delta.

Surprising that California doesn't have too many co-ops either!

I love this style pole. Not many around here. Slemco only has a handfull of them, and one is de-energized. But Good Guy Slemco still maintains it but only at 34.5kv standards.

There aren't too many of these lines in this area either. Seems the news ones all use armless construction with posts bolted to the pole. I do give Escambia River Electric Co-Op some credit, though, as they still build all the replacements on these older lines to the same spec with crossarms and disks.

Florida is one of the few states I've seen so far that have Co-ops consisting of pole construction that actually differs from the usual co-op look. I've noticed some of the co-ops in the southern half of the state have some pretty interesting and unusual armless construction.

They like the armless stuff a lot in the eastern and southern portions of the state...especially where FP&L and Progress Energy are at.

Some of the poles in this photo have now been 'yucked' with silicone post insulators.
