  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's the base of the breaker pole with the brown JD mini disks. Red plate on it says it's dead in the top. JEA's been doing some big pole replacements here in the Riveriside area, so I fear this pole's days are numbered.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Another close look at the old JD mini disks. Not too often when I see these in service!


  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's a close view of the breaker pole with the old JD bronco disks. Open cutouts suggest this is part of a bastard loop.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's the next-door neighbor to the pole in the next pictures with blue johnny balls. This one's got some nice insulators on it too--the disks you see there are the old mini-size JD disks, often referred to as the "bronco" disks. Typically I only find t…

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here is a nice example of early construction from Jacksonville Electric Authority, a municipally-owned electric utility that serves much of the Jacksonville area. This is in the old section of town before they consolidated with Duval County in 1968. Not…


  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Close-up view of the crossarm construction on the pole in the previous photo. This is a real oldie that went up over 90 years ago. Note the heavy-duty pins and the johnny-ball deadends. The blue glaze on the johnny-balls adds a nice touch, doesn't it? Th…

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Another close-up of the other end of the crossarm. Note the small box cutouts on early style brackets. Those cutouts are a holdover from the old days when this ran at 2.4kV delta rather than 4160Y.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's a close look at the crossarm construction in its entirety. Typically I don't take this many pictures of just one pole, but I couldn't pass this one up.


  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Another look at the old pole.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Gotta love those old blue johnny balls! Sadly, it appears that they may end up being completely extinct within a year judging by the way things have been going with JEA.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's a later concrete pole with a fiberglass arm and a riser.


  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's an old pole that had some work done to it recently. Still some interesting stuff on it though, most notably the horizontally-mounted secondary spool rack, featured in this picture:

  • JEA 23kV & 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's some interesting stuff. A 4.16kV three phase line branches off of the trunk, which is featured in the background. A 23kV line runs nearby as well. A close look at the poles on the 4kV branch line reveals some interesting construction, which is fea…

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    If you look close, you will notice some blue small-size JD disks on the buckarm on the pole in front.


  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's a close look at the pole featured in the previous photo. Note the small-size JD "bronco" disks, this time in a blue glaze.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    Here's a nice old buckarm pole, with a lone L-M SiC lightning arrester on the top arm.

  • JEA 4.16kV - Jacksonville, FL

    I was always a fan of these old-style spool deadends.
