As the demand for electrical energy has risen, there has been a concomitant trend towards the use of higher transmission line voltages. The environmental impacts of the electrical and physical properties of such high voltage transmission lines is outlined in this paper. In particular a review is made of the latest available literature and research regarding this problem.
