Power Line Lawyers and Attorneys in Cartersville, Georgia

Electric power lines present property owners with many unpleasant realities. An electric transmission or distribution line easement devalues the land it crosses and makes the land inappropriate for many types of development. The presence of an electric power line often reduces the value of surrounding land in percentage amounts ranging from 15% to 60%. Land burdened by a power line generally sells for less than other similar property and takes far longer to sell. The economic consequences for a property owner can be catastrophic.

High voltage electric transmission and distribution lines create electromagnetic fields that extend far beyond the recognizable edge of any easement. Electricity often escapes from the electric lines and travels through the ground between the poles and electric substations. The high voltage lines will produce buzzing sounds and unpleasant odors. These factors create health risks and reduce property values.
