I'd snip my pants if i were the guy getting my mail at that box when it purges! 😆

Or if the breakers open under load. Not quite as impressive as this, but...

Prey standard substation around here due to the large number of solar farms. They'll place transformers underneath at some point probably 4 of them by the size. I'll try to post some pics of them if I get a chance.

It looks like circuit breakers being used in a novel way. There seems to be a dirt track or lane almost underneath, so they'd hardly build a substation there.

Looks like a future junction point and maybe a future step up voltage substation,
right now it only has the structure and breakers on the line, maybe 220Kv. or lower

Could also be a future grid-level flow battery home. The surge protectors would work two ways--going in and coming out hence the ground fault (looks like) loops.

If you have ever seen a ground fault loop blow on a power line then you know why they are there! Man, thought a nuclear explosion happened as it lit the inside of my apartment. And I was kind of bummed when I did not bother to check to see if I could see my skeleton (lol)!
