Utility companies often asked farmers to bear the burden of cost for line construction, provide labor, or as in Central Maine Power Co.'s plans, at least guarantee a certain threshold of consumption.

This brochure included a graph paper insert on which farmers could diagram their property then send the sheet to the company for tailored information.
