Spotted this on the way from Decatur to Springfied (IL) on US 36 / I 74. As I approached from a distance, I thought that the iron workers had substituted a section of bridge span for regular crossarms on the high-tension span! . I managed to snap this pic on the way back later in the morning.

The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.
