Have you complained to them about the power reliability?
I live in a conservative suburb of a southern city. The state is "blue", hates taxes, and lets the power, telephone and cable companies run their lines on poles. (Part of the justification is that the water table is pretty high, and it rains a lot.) But... my house went more than a year without a clock-resetting power flicker, and that one lasted only a few seconds.
One thing that I do know that the power company does is make an annual drive through each neighborhood looking for tree branches that hang too close to the lines, and then cuts them off. Presumably, they perform other sorts of behind the scenes maintenance, in order to keep reliability so high.
