Where does that electric line go?

Another decision to make when building in a rural area! The electric line ends at the farm house so the electric company has to install poles and run line to our house. We're responsible for the cost of the line extension after 500 feet so we have to pay for about 100 feet of line by running the line across the road and then back to our side of the road. Seems a little silly to have the line cross over the road twice, but if we didn't we would have to cut down a few very old trees to keep the line on one side of the road. Our other option was to run the line from the back of the houses, but then we would have to agree to have a 30 foot easement through our property.
