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

    Now, time for the non-idled transformer bank! This one also features an additional single-phase can for lighting.

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

    Not too often when I see four transformers on one pole.


  • 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…

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

    Here is a closer view of the pole in the previous photo. The three-phase transformer bank on this pole is currently idled, but the single-phase CSP transformer in front is still running.

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

    Looks like they're getting ready to put in another three-phase transformer bank for the peanut processing facility.


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

    Here is a side view of this transformer pole:

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

    I thought this picture came out well. The pole featured in it is the same one with the idled three-bank featured in my other pictures.

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

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


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

    Now we're back near the Sessions peanut processing facility, where all those temporarily idled transformer-banks can be found at. What you can see here is a recent replacement pole on the 46/12.47kV line. Note that it uses the same arrangement as the old…

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

    Another view of the 46/12.47kV line. This segment has had the odd disk hanger brackets as long as I can remember.

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

    Here is a close view of the 46kV mid-line deadend pole. These are placed every 20 or 30 spans for storm bracing.


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

    Every 20 or 30 spans or so, a deadend is placed in the line. Here you can see one of the deadend poles relative to the rest of the line. Note the delta arrangement of the phases on the 46kV deadend.

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

    Here you can see one of the outgoing 12.47kV circuits ducking underneath the 46kV transmission line. Note the short poles, and the unusually thick one on the corner! That thick pole used to be a full-sized transmission pole holding the 46kV line, but it g…

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

    A 12.47kV distribution circuit exits the Chumuckla substation with the neutral up on the arm.


  • Escambia River Electric Co-Op Chumuckla Substation - Santa Rosa County, FL

    And here it is: the Chumuckla subsation! This sub steps 46kV down to 12.47kV. I had some old pictures I took on film of this line--some time I'll have to see if I can find them.

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

    A closer look at the substation. This sub steps 46kV down into three 12.47kV distribution circuits.

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

    Here we are approaching the end of this branch of the 46kV system. The vertical corner pole in the background is where the line enters the substation.
