Aluminum, Concrete, Fiberglass, and Steel Structures
1010607 Aluminum, Concrete, Fiberglass, and Steel StructuresEnvironmental considerations have increased the use of aluminum, concrete, fiberglass, and steel to support electric transmission and distribution circuits. Wood-pole structures have generally proved to be the most economical for distribution and transmission lines operating at voltages through 345 kV. The design of structures to make them compatible with the environment has resulted in the use of materials and colors to blend together with the natural surroundings. Aluminum, concrete, fiberglass, and steel structures, properly used, may reduce the widths of rights-of-ways required for distribution and transmission lines.
