Deb Kayes, Ocean Shores
How blessed are we to be living in the Northern Rivers with its green rolling hills and coastal scenery. Wait a sec, what’s that?
Poles, wires – marching, cutting a swathe through Melaleuca forests, across paddocks, next to significant trees, along country roads, through the middle of town, across the sky; they’re unstoppable.
It’s power poles by Essential Energy. They’re everywhere, ugly, spoiling the scenery and obstructing ocean and mountain views.
It’s 2019. Bury the power grid in the ground. It’s safer, no storm damage, and aesthetically more beautiful.
Why can’t all the Shire be pole free like Ocean Shores?
