Re: 350kW!!!!

Regs for substation installation in urban areas are very different to rural, particularly on matters of cable routing and grounding. Even ignoring that, there are minimum separations required between a substation and surrounding infrastructure that would be extremely difficult to meet in any reasonably built up area.

On a more general note, the electrical infrastructure in this country is in dire need of upgrade all over.
