The Process of Installing Transmission Towers
The electricity that you use to power the computer or charge the laptop or smartphone that you’re reading this on comes from many miles away in most instances. There has to be a way of transmitting that electricity from its source, which is where transmission towers come in. These help carry power cables over miles and miles.
We’d have assumed that they get built from the ground up at the location where they are planned to be installed, but it is a lot more exciting than that. These towers are carried whole, as a single piece, and flown to the location where they are to be installed.
