These are old poles from Carolina Power & Light (which merged into Progress Energy, and then into "Duke Energy"). I've changed the names over to their original builder so they'll make more sense.

Interesting how you mention the electric monopoly here. This photo shows an unusual case where two utilities' boundaries overlap, giving customers a choice on their electric providers! The line/transformer on top is owned by Duke Energy, and the line/transformer on the bottom is owned by the Lumberton Electric Department.

Most unusual ...
We have Duke Energy (still call it Duke Power) --
Don't know that I have ever lived where electric utilities were not a monopoly .. where we lived in Florida, the city owned it.

Hats off to Lumberton Electric Dept !

Very likely I think. I wonder if the customer here switched its electric provider, causing that transformer to be disconnected?
