And yes the movie/story was about groundwater contamination, not power.
Just curious if the OP has a cell phone? I mean I am all for livestock, but we aren't going to worry about humans? Cause there sure are a lot of those fugly things sitting right next to homes. But if I owned property and they wanted to put one up I would say yes in a heartbeat. They pay rent in our area, around $800 a month and that would certainly offset any boarders I would lose.
