Distribution lines

Distribution lines
Overhead distribution lines consist of wires supported by utility poles about 10 metres (30 feet) high. These poles are most often made of wood but are sometimes concrete.

Transmission lines

Transmission lines
Transmission lines are operated at much higher voltages than distribution lines. The towers may be made of metal lattice, concrete or wood, and they come in various shapes and heights (from 14 m to over 100 m).

Hydroelectric facilities

Hydroelectric facilities
Hydroelectric facilities are built on rivers. There are often servitudes linked to properties along the river both upstream and downstream of these facilities.
