Utility Poles consist of wooden poles used to support overhead power lines and various other public utilities, such as cables, fiber optic cables, and related equipment such as transformers and streetlights. "Electrical cable is routed overhead on utility poles as an inexpensive way to keep it insulated from the ground and out of the way of people and vehicles."
