Here in on the lava side of the Big Island of Hawaii, the power company 
installs at 10% of the length of the pole plus 2 feet.

Commercial practice is to bury 1/3rd the length of the pole in
the ground.
5 feet doesn't sound right to me, but I am not an engineer.
Call your local
power company -- a quick conversation with one of their
engineers will help
