unless you are or have been a lineman no one can understand the hazard of the job. Yes I've worked live line repairs and new builds live. No we do not kill the power to work on the lines, they are live. Transmissionlines can be rerouterd to be worked bare handed, distribution has to be worked hot unless storm damage has caused the outage. the power cos. have kept rates down but the rebuilding & maintaining lines is expensive. Someone has to pay to "flick" a switch for energy; yes the customer sorry to say.
