Distribution poles outnumber transmission structures by a factor of 10:1 and while transmission lines are critical, it is distribution poles that are responsible for last mile service supply. With less stringent engineering requirements than transmission applications, it is distribution lines that are arguably more susceptible to the threats of wind (hurricanes), water (ice storms) and wildfires.
Grid hardening, resilient PowerON products will reliably perform in all conditions. The non-conductive composite material keeps crews safe, especially in live line work.
Impervious to woodpeckers, composite PowerON poles have a durable resin rich surface which cannot be climbed by squirrels, raccoons, bears or any other critter. This ensures the highest service reliability in areas with abundant wildlife.
