Maybe he was from a First-World country where you don’t have over-head electrical distribution, especially in any area denser than farmland, because the power lines are buried. Sorry, this is poor, short-sited, broken down USA where we always go with lowest FIRST-cost option. FIRST-cost is the only FIRST in USA.
