Distribution Systems

Distribution systems are the connection between the end user and the “grid” and usually carry electrical power from sub-stations (fed by High Voltage Transmission lines) to the farm or rural residence. This page provides resources to help you understand how the distribution system works as well as a collection of topics related to maintenance of the distribution system and connecting farms, homes and electrical generation equipment to the distribution system.
