I think with ESB you’re allowed half a kilometre from the main power lines, thereafter you pay a contribution. I don’t think you’ll pay 100% costs in any case. No matter what way you look at it – it is fundamentally unfair to charge the same for a house that needs only a cable up a driveway from the area transformer to a house that needs an extension to the main power line and additional poles and an individual power transformer.
Diaspora – you’re bang on about the storm situation. I believe ESB have more overhead km’s than the UK!!!
