The purpose of this article is to present an introduction to the literature concerning policy and theoretical considerations in the challenging environment of siting electricity transmission lines in local communities. The research literature in this area is underdeveloped with few practical manifestations of the concept. While there is evidence of high levels of public resistance to the siting of overhead lines, there is a gap regarding initiatives to help them become more socially acceptable.
