I'll keep promoting articles like these—we can throw money, planning and permitting to the transmission line problem, but it's one of those rare issues that will take buy-in from nearly everyone or we will never be able to do this. This article focuses on burying transmission cables but it relates, too, to building new cables. Because these projects will undoubtedly stretch multiple political terms, property owners will have to be more than just brought to the table, they will have to be made to feel part of the solution and onboard, and potentially compensated for their efforts because these plans and permits need to be resilient in the face of changing political faces and regimes.
