Just came in from work and checked the board. Looks like you figured it out. I was way wrong wasn't I?!

Inductive influence loss, huh, who woulda thought.

Not sure, that is what the site said but when I went to town today I looked at every power line and none were twisted? I have seen them turned but not on the one's near me. Go figure now that I put my foot in my mouth! Mark H.

Our lines are 7620 and 14400 volt. We have over 4000 miles of line and I know that none of ours are done that way. We have one place where we are on the same poles with our electric supplier that has 34500 and it isn't like that either.
The transmission lines that feed our subs are 69000 and they are not that way.

Electric Cooperatives are regulated by the government as to how they frame poles, and there isn't anything in the spec books about rolling the lines. We have to comply in order to get government loans from R.U.S.(used to be called REA).

Maybe it is done by some private electric corperation like Ameron U.E.

I will ask our engineer this morning.
