Our electric service provider wants to place another pole with guide wires near our sheds and drive which will cause probs for snow removal and driving in general. The situation is the utility company has a pole near the road they can put the transformer and then run triplex to us. But, the neighbors whose bin site sits behind us thinks the transformer should be closer to his pole so he does not have to pay for energy traveling from the road to his meter. Is there really a difference in the electricity price the closer the transformer is to your meter? There is a law with the utility company where you cannot have a transformer and meter on the same pole. Apparently there is a utility easement for power crossing our land. Probably grandfathered in.
