colinspooky: or join the civilised world and bury the wires

Why do yo hate the working class? Just how many good paying Union jobs are tied to needing to maintain the current system.

If you bury them it means less maintenance and fewer jobs. Of course they could always find working at Solyndra or building Chevy Volts.

Of course things like population density, miles of line to be buried (more than any other country) also come into play

Best way to do it would be to mandate all new lines to be buried and existing lines buried as they need repair and have consumers eat the cost over time.
