  1. We live in Hancock County, Ohio. Over the past couple of years you’ve been installing huge, metal utility poles, but it doesn’t seem that any of the older, wood poles have been taken down. What’s the purpose of this change?
    Thanks for informing me!

    1. Good question, Karen! The huge metal utility poles are likely high-voltage Transmission poles, which are different from the poles you might see on your neighborhood streets and carry a lower voltage. We routinely inspect the wooden poles, too, and replace them as necessary. Side note: Supply chain issues are causing some difficulty in getting wooden utility poles so it’s possible you might start seeing steel poles in other areas, too. Thank you for writing!
