“What structures are put in place to transmit electricity along long distances?”
Human civilization in its present form has a tremendous energy requirement to sustain itself, which is provided through the use of complex energy generation systems. However, such infrastructure tends to be placed a large distance away from inhabitation, so how can we transfer the generated energy safely into where humans need them? Well, we can accomplish such a task through the use of overhead power lines. Overhead power lines are constructed by using one or more conducting lines being suspended through strong mechanical beams. These conducting lines will be able to safely insulate from the external world and transfer it to other locations, while the beams will be able to support the weight. Overhead power lines are a cost effective way to distribute energy and are used around the world from the mountains of California to the streets of Istanbul.
