What takes longer, installing the towers and footings or running the lines? Towers I would bet!

like a lot of work.
I've seen a tornado take out towers like
they were tinker toys for miles at a time.
Vaquero how much does it cost to replace

The towers are average around $100,000 each materials and labor.
A mile of high voltage transmission line runs around a mil.
Oddly, the cost is dropping, mostly due to labor costs.

Money is tight. I've done some jobs I
knew I would break even on just to

Yep, lots of those bids going out these days. Honestly, If more CEOs of big corporations would bid low just to keep folks working the country would turn around pretty quick. They just keep cutting costs(as in labor) to make margin and collect a fat bonus for themselves.
