We just bought some rural property that has access to electrical power from the street. Ideally we would like to go straight to off the grid, but that does not seem feasible right now. We are looking to put up a metal building for climate controlled storage / living space, so the real need for power is for cooling that building.
When we decide to have the power brought on the property, we are thinking about burying the cable instead of having a line of poles going across the property (both for aesthetics and safety). At some point if we can go off grid, I would also prefer to not have to look at poles that we no longer use. We haven't discussed this with the power company yet. We are planning on trenching and burying the cable ourselves, and having the power company make the connections. Distance from the street will be about 1,500'.
I was just wondering if anyone has done this, or what their thoughts might be concerning burying power lines on their property.
