Power lines are power lines, right? Not exactly.
Some power lines move electricity at high voltages while others move electricity at lower voltages. These lower voltages are suitable for inside your home.
OPPD’s electric system is made of transmission lines (high voltages) and distribution lines (lower voltages) to serve our customers. Each type of line has its own characteristics and jobs.
Meet OPPD engineer Matt Peterson in the above video. He’ll explain the difference between the two and their importance in the electric grid.
