    Question Fair Compensation for a Utility Easement

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: pennsylvania

    Our local electric utility wishes to anchor a new pole, the the anchor would come onto our property an extra five feet past the 35 feet allowed by law. What would be fair compensation for this?

    Default Re: Fair Compensation for a Utility Easement

    You would need to know the square footage of the proposed take and the value of you property per acre.

    If they are taking five square feet, they would be liable for 5/43,560 of the value of your property per acre.

    So if your land is worth a million dollars per acre, you would get about $115.
