Electric Distribution

Responsibilities

Collect field data on over head distribution poles, estimate conductor gauge and length, determine accessibility to line trucks based on poles location, use PG&E environmental data base to determine if  environmental  services are needed, calculate pole loading characteristics through a Computer Based PG&E calculation tool, and communicate specific data to PGF&E construction crew and over sight engineer.  As the contract came to a close I also created and edited auto CAD approximately 67 construction drawings.
