"It very well could be yes, typically the company putting them in like a southern California Edison, ConEd etc will have one engineer that designs the towers, the design is usually driven by function and how many lines they are built to carry. Those cables are extremely heavy I don't recall pounds per foot of transmission line but they are in the neighborhood of 4-6" thick. Intermixed designs could be a supply issue, a failure or replacement issue or they sent the wrong tower it met specs and they put it up anyways "

"They could be from that or they could be tied into that distribution line "

"Not too far away we passed a huge group of the large white wind Mills but none were turning that I could see. "

"Is it one of the major lines across the country? What determines the design of the tower? I saw some intermixed styles."

"Most of these typically run from a large generation station such as a nuclear or coal powered facility. Some may run from a very large wind installations or a very large solar array like solar1 in CA

"This is a Transmission line typically 200,000 volts and above some are running DC voltage in the 500,000 volt range "
