Looks like all you can do is take them to court class action style. Isnt this a public safety issue? Downed lines in a storm are normal. Burying the lines is the safest but try to get the power companies to spend the money. They cant even build a state-of-the-art power plant but they can soak us for the fuel it takes to power a pos turbine. They are going to do what they want when they want where they want and we are going to like it.

I argued with FPL about moving the regular sized power pole in front of my house. Their excuse for not putting all their power underground was cost. And yet, all new construction has to have underground power. So why in God's name does the state allow the power companies to erect these monstrosities when it would be cheaper in the long run to bury them? There wouldn't be any downed poles or blown transformers because of birds flying into them. FPL even told me that squirrels running along power lines can disrupt our power. It's ridiculous and an eyesore.
It's past time for municipalities to speak up for their residents and communities and preserve what's left of the natural beauty of Florida by banning new construction of above ground power.

You should move to the 789. The project will only take a few decades!
