It is a cost/efficiency issue.


Since  P=VI where P= power, V= voltage and I = current


P=VI, the higher the voltage, the lower the current for a same amount of power transmitted.


Any transmission line has a resistance, and the losses due to the heating of the line are given by


 Ploss=I2 R


Thus, the lower the current, the lower the losses in the transmission line.
