This argoment does only apply to poles (Power=pole). For pylons
(tower=power) this is not normally true. With pylons you can clearly see
the power lines that go the ground at an angle (often to a transformer or a
switch yard).
 Also I don't think this situation is called "riser" at all. Risers exist
only with poles.
