Eversource, the power utility company that supplies most of the New England area has been removing porcelain line posts on distribution lines on Cape Cod and replacing them with these polymer ones. This pole was photographed along a road close to the waters of the Cape Cod Bay. I highly doubt these polymer posts will hold up in the salty sea environment. I am curious as to what the thought process behind doing this is... These nice glass suspensions along this same line were also recently removed in favor of polymer suspensions.
