- That’s $700 dangling there. Yep - $700 is what it costs each time we have to send out a crew to unhook a pair of grotty old sneakers thrown over a powerline. Plus, there’s the potential disruption to supply, wasted time and effort, and safety risk. If you spot someone flinging shoes over a line, report it – call police, or Energex on 13 12 53.1d
