Besides raising awareness of local residents and the establishment of a Management Committee of the electricity in partnership with the EDH, which will connect the families concerned to the network using meters to facilitate the collection of monthly bills of the subscription, the inhabitants of Fleuranceau will participate alongside technicians of the EDH responsible for the technical work, to the laying of 48 wooden poles on a distance of 2.5 km.
