      The 7% number would be about right for the total system losses from the
      generator to consumer, the portion of that attributable to the high-voltage
      transmission only would be about 2%, excluding transformer losses at both
      ends.

      Here's one:

      "With current technology, losses in power transmission lines are about 7%.
      Reducing these losses to 6% would result in a national annual energy savings
      of 4 X 1010 kilowatt-hours

      - an annual energy savings roughly equivalent to 24 million barrels of oil."

      Hi all,

      There was recent post about the % of High Voltage transmission line loss.
      Does anybody have what was the percentage and any urls that give specific
      numbers

      Thanks

      Rush
