I have 40 acres across the street from a small subdivision. I would like to build a home on the property but need to run electricity across the road. However, because I will not allow the residents of this subdivision to dump their leaves and other yard waste on my property, the person where the pole sits where we need to get electricity from refuses to sign an easement agreement. When first asked, he agreed but decided later when approached to sign the agreement, to not grant this access. The pole is literally 10 to 15 feet from the road and the shortest distance to run the electricity. How can a person be the deciding factor on what pole we get electricity from when the pole is literally very close to the road? Is there not an easement that the electric company owns that can override the homeowner's decision? How can a person be denied access to electricity anywhere in this day and age? I do have pictures of where the pole sits and the distance of where the electricity would have to run.
