Construction & Maintenance

We commit to constructing and maintaining reliable electrical infrastructure that prevents power outages and improves quality of life. Our construction and maintenance services include high-voltage transmission and distribution lines, substations, and undergrounding. Our talented foremen have the equipment and experience necessary to exceed expectations with every construction and maintenance project. They daily embody our mission to do the next right thing.


From beginning to end, we construct and maintain high-voltage transmission systems to generate power to substations. Keeping safety at the forefront, our foremen install new overhead transmission lines up to 161kV and specialize in reconductoring, reinsulating, and rebuilding existing transmission lines up to 161kV.

Maintenance for transmission systems goes beyond the actual high-voltage lines. Our specially-trained foremen execute structure replacements and repairs to the steel, wood, and concrete poles holding up the lines. They also ensure a solid foundation and caisson are installed to keep the transmission structures in-tact.

From their entire staff to their management staff, and all the way down to the crews in the field, everyone that we dealt with at Taylor was a pleasure to deal with. They were able to service the entire scope of the project and handled the project with ease. It would be our honor to work with them on another project.

We build and maintain overhead high-voltage distribution lines to distribute power from substations to many different types of locations. Our services extend to electrical cooperatives, public-owned utilities, commercial businesses, government locations, and local municipalities.

Our well-trained foremen and comprehensive supply of equipment enable us to install, reconductor, and reinsulate overhead lines from 4Kv-34.5Kv. Just like the transmission lines process, this includes the installation, replacement, and maintenance of wood, steel, or concrete poles to carry the distribution lines.

Beyond distribution line construction & maintenance, our foremen specialize in line removal and relocations, make-ready work for internet and telecommunications cable placement, and overhead-to-underground conversions.

Over the past 25 years, Taylor Electric has worked on various transmission and distribution projects for Athens Utilities. Their work was always performed according to specifications and in a timely manner. We would not hesitate to use their services again for any of our transmission or distribution construction needs.

Substation Construction

Substation Construction

Apart from general distribution and transmission line construction, we specialize in substation construction. This includes the entire build process from start to finish:

  • Site clearing
  • Civil work
  • Foundations
  • Steel erection
  • Grounding grid
  • Sub-surface trenching, conduit, and control wiring
  • Switch, breaker, and transformer installations and updates
  • Substation expansion
  • Relaying and control work

We build substations that connect distribution and transmission lines and keep electrical systems running smoothly. Our goal is always to create reliable substations so that our community experiences fewer power outages and a better quality of life.

Underground Distribution

We commit to advancing underground distribution lines for the safety, reliability, and aesthetic benefits they add to our community. Our team has the knowledge, skills, and equipment to fix any underground line issues. We put safety first for our team members and clients and prepare for each job with the necessary precautions.

We understand the importance of installing, maintaining, and fixing underground distribution lines, because they are less likely to be damaged in a storm or to cause fires. They also replace the unsightly overhead lines that tend to make our landscape less beautiful.

Undergrounding Services We Offer:

  • Installation of new underground lines from 4Kv-34.5Kv
  • Replacement of existing cables and conduits
  • Installation of pad-mount transformers
  • Sectionalizing cabinets
  • Vaults
  • Pad-mount switches
  • Pad-mount transfer switches
  • Generators
  • Cable testing and fault locating
  • Concrete-encased duct systems

We have experience finding faults underground quickly and rallying our resources for the most cost-effective and efficient solution. We also install full underground transmission lines correctly the first time, reducing the need for maintenance in the future.
