Looking for some suggestions on how to combat a extremely long run for a farm house. The electrical service drop is on the edge of the road, and they would like to put a new house in a area that shows a nice view. The problem is the distance between. I am looking at 1500 feet+. With the voltage drop, it looks like it would be 500 MCM wire. Yikes! Any suggestions. Transformers? Just wondering what anybody might think. High Voltage line addition would be about 17,000. Thanks!

Can set a 120/240x480 transformer and then a 480 x 120/240. Run all conductors in conduit and use XHHW.
