6 Reasons to Try FRP Cross Arms

In an industry with vast infrastructure that is meant to last a quarter century or more, changes don’t happen overnight when a new technology comes along. At this point you are probably aware of FRP as an alternative to traditional cross arm materials like wood or steel. But, why should you start using FRP cross.. read more →

The State of Current Electric Power Infrastructure

North America relies on an aging electrical grid, some of which originated as far back as the 1880s. Demand for electricity continues to increase and create further need to not only update but expand the grid. Our existing electricity energy infrastructure is composed of: Electricity generation facilities—approximately 5,800 major power plants and numerous other smaller.. read more →

High Quality Timber Supply for Transmission Line Construction

Wood has been a popular material for transmission line construction since its upfront cost is relatively inexpensive when compared to substitutes such as steel and composite material. However, the quantity and quality of timber required for transmission structures continues to decline as a result of environmental degradation and de-forestation. As the demand for energy and.. read more →
