I recall that about 10 years ago a very serious case of RFI from PG&E lines 
in the California Sierra foothills was taken to Federal court because the 
FCC wouldn't enforce the existing laws.  The court refused to act - and as I 
recall there was a suggestion that a case of ham radio interference wasn't 
enough to require PG&E to spend the $100K or more it would have taken to fix 
the problem (according to PG&E).  I don't have the reference but I suspect 
someone at ARRL HQ could dig it up.
