(a) A municipal electric utility shall construct, operate, and maintain its transmission lines and distribution lines along highways and at other places in accordance with the national electrical safety code.

With regard to clearances, an electric utility that is not a municipal electric utility. The first two practical electric telegraphs appeared at almost the same time. In the British inventors Sir William Fothergill Cooke and Sir Charles Wheatstone obtained a patent on a telegraph system that employed six wires and actuated five needle pointers attached to five galvanoscopes at the receiver.

The first extensive telegraph network was the visual telegraph. In the Frenchman Claude Chappe used a visual network (which consisted of a telescope, a clock, a codebook, and black and white panels) to send a message ten miles. He called his invention the télégraphe, or far writer.

An electrical telegraph was a point-to-point text messaging system, used from the s until better systems became widespread. It used coded pulses of electric current through dedicated wires to transmit information over long distances.

It was the first electrical telecommunications system, the most widely used of a number of early messaging systems called telegraphs, devised to send text. Developed in the s and s by Samuel Morse () and other inventors, the telegraph revolutionized long-distance communication.

It worked by transmitting electrical signals over a wire laid between stations. In addition to helping invent the telegraph, Samuel Morse developed a code (bearing his name).Books to Borrow.
