Bigger, Better, Taller...Power Poles

Paula Allen, good friend and agent extraordinare, reported in from West Burbank today. Burbank's DWP knocked on her door and announced it was replacing the power pole in her backyard. Paula pointed out that the existing pole looked just fine, but BWP said the new poles are needed to meet the increased demand for power. And they're six inches higher than the old ones. Question: isn't the world going to buried power lines rather than poles? What gives? Since Burbank has its own power supply that performed very well last summer when every other community's was going out, I guess I shouldn't question this.
