Many people living away from urban centres face a large cost in connecting to the grid.
It used to be that part (or all) of this connection was carried by the owner of the grid. Now, for every potential connection a quote is done, and these quotes are often very high. We often hear stories of people being quoted over $100,000 for connection to the grid.
