FWIW I would not want to live near one. They are ugly, they hum and my radio doesn't work right when I drive under them. Whenever you buy a house you should think about how difficult it might be to sell it later on.

The pesticide comment is a very good one. It may not be the ELF but the pesticide used to keep vegetation beneath it under control that is the greater risk.
I'm not a tin-foil-hat-wearing alarmist by any means, but I would never trust a study put out or sponsored by any government organization. The 2nd link looks more believable.

You're right, though. Resale will be tough, and that's always something you want to think of when buying a house. Even if you don't intend to ever leave, eventually someone will have to sell it on your behalf. Also, the pesticide use is a huge deal, especially when you're dealing with pets.
