    It could be a WiFi box.

    Could they be Wi-Fi hotspots? I know that Cox, for example, has quite a few hotspots located on electric poles in my city, but I don't know what they look like.

    Or it could be some kind of radio transceiver that sends the electric company some telemetry about how much juice is flowing through that part of the grid, to help them diagnose and fix problems remotely without sending a person and a car out there?

      I'm thinking some sort of electric utility telemetry, too.

    that might be where they put the batteries or whatever in it
