There are engineering reasons why transmission lines can't be buried. Smaller distribution lines can be placed undergroung -- I'm no engineer and don't know why. I would point out, too, that growth and consumption continue to grow. Think about how many gadgets you have that use electricity -- televisions, cell phones, laptops, desktops, cordless phones, coffee machines, ovens,etc.. Want to fix the problem, get off the grid. :)

I figured there was a good reason why those sized lines couldn't be buried, but didn't know the facts. One reader wrote me and said that they've already started setting poles in her area, and that she's in the "proposed" alley. Wonder what that's all about ...

I have a friend who wanted to fix the problem, and he did just what you suggested - off the grid. Reduced his carbon footprint exponentially ... me, I like my gadgets :/
