• Georgia Power 46kV - Dawson, GA

    An old 46kV transmission pole. This pole has been converted over to armless construction.

  • Georgia Power 115kV & 46kV - Dawson, GA

    A 115kV transmission line on wooden H-frames runs next to the old 46kV line.

  • Georgia Power 46kV - Dawson, GA

    Here's an old 46kV pole from the 1930s, still standing with its original crossarm. Many of these poles have been converted to armless construction with post insulators bolted to the pole (see pole in background).


  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Dawson, GA

    A 12.47kV distribution line runs by U. S. Highway 82 at Dawson. The pole in front is original armless construction from around 1960.

  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    Here is a vertical corner pole insulated for 24.9.

  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    Typical transformer pole from Georgia Power.


  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    These switches are popular on Georgia Power, along with other utilities owned by Southern Co. Also seen them up in New Brunswick.

  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    Here is a well-preserved transformer pole from the 1960's.

  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    In the center you can see one of the POS toothpick replacements.


  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    Unfortunately, this shot didn't come out quite as clear as I like, but I guess we can still make out the pole OK. This pole hosts one of Southern Co.'s deadend arms with posts bolted to the ends.

  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    12470V fixed capacitor-bank.

  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    A three-phase distribution line transitions into open Y at this pole.


  • Georgia Power 12.47kV - Valdosta, GA

    Got a couple different generations of construction here.

  • Georgia Power 46kV & 7.2kV - Sylvester, GA

    250kva transformer steps 46000 at high primary down to 7200, multigrounded single-phase for distribution.

  • Georgia Power 46kV & 7.2kV - Sylvester, GA

    Here's a neat little setup. The transformer on the right (described with detail in next photo) steps 46kV delta down to 7.2kV multigrounded single phase for local distribution. Note the small recloser on the cutout pole on the 7.2.


  • Georgia Power 46kV & 7.2kV - Sylvester, GA

    A farther-off view of the setup described in this photo:

  • Georgia Power 46kV & 7.2kV - Sylvester, GA

    Here you can see the 7.2kV step-down pole hiding behind a 46kV switch-pole.

  • Georgia Power 46kV - Sylvester, GA

    Now this is cool! 750kva worth of distribution cans run off of 46000 at primary. Highest voltage direct distribution that I have ever seen in person. This transformer-bank feeds a coke bottling/distribution center off of U. S. Route 82 in the town of Syl…
