Electrical and Wireless Transmission

Once a transmission line is energized and in service, it’s like any other energized line. The “process” is what sets Prime Energy apart. From inception to completion, our goal is to be your trusted supplier and an integral part of your team and your overall utility solution.

Regardless of the complexity, size, or scope, Prime Energy stands ready to deliver on our promise to be the best steel pole provider in the industry. We are a trusted supplier of tubular steel products created with a focus on safety, quality, and on-time delivery.

Allow us the opportunity to show you why the largest utilities in the U.S. put their trust in us to deliver on time and on budget.

As the leading designer of power delivery structures in the United States,

Prime Energy has more than 3 decades of experience engineering, designing, installing, and maintaining steel transmission and distribution structures ranging from 69kV to 765kV.

From a single pole to large projects with various configurations, Prime Energy will meet all of your needs.

Wood Pole Equivalents

Whether a single pole, multi-pole, H-frame, A-frame, 3-pole or custom structure, Prime works with clients to design and install specialty structures. All of our poles are installed with an emphasis on quality and ease of installation. Specialty structures are pre-fit by experienced fabricators prior to shipment for smooth field experience. We provide various foundation options to ensure the lowest installed cost solutions. These include anchor-based, direct embed, caisson and even full-length anchor cage styles, as required by foundation parameters.

Severe weather, fires, animal damage, environmental issues, and accessibility are all reasons to consider transitioning from wooden poles to steel ‘wood pole equivalent’ structures that provide increased durability. Our Sub Transmission Series poles are easy to install and maintain and are designed to comply with all ANSI and RUS requirements.

Calculate the pole right for your needs using our convenient Sub Transmission Series Pole worksheet or reach out to PE engineering experts to ensure the optimal pole height and embedment depth for your needs, depending on pole class.
