Thatís it. Thatís all I know about the electrical side of our plant. Shit scares me. You can SEE a water leak. Electricity? Not so much.

I use a drone at work with IR and scope out PEPCOs 69KV feeders feeding us. Thatís as close as I get to arial power. Screw that. Ever watch those crazy SOBs that climb around on energized cables from a helicopter ?

I always wonder about the first guy that ever did that.
