I don't know why but I really enjoy these older informational videos. This guy and the background music remind me of the original Dragnet TV show.

Direct bury transformers? HV switching mounted on the side of a house? I have never heard of such things. Are these still in use?

I would not. I also don't think I'd want a transformer buried right beside my house, nor a HV tap box mounted beside my meter.

I enjoy these older videos as well, thanks for sharing! I manage a small Indian Tribal Utility in Oregon and our 15 kV & 21 kV Distribution is 100% underground however, we do not follow some of the practices of this video
