Overhead Power Lines

Overhead Line Facts:

  • About 52% of Union Power’s active lines (approximately 3,100 miles) are overhead lines.
  • Overhead lines are generally less expensive to install, but this depends on the location and distance of the line needed.
  • Overhead lines are easier to maintain and repair than are underground lines.
  • If trees, winds, or ice damages overhead lines, our crews work to restore power quickly.
