Idea: Allow drones to recharge from power lines

There are miles and miles of high voltage power lines running all throughout Canada – from city to city and province to province. Wouldn’t it be cool if delivery drones and such had an ability to recharge by hovering and attaching a charge cable to an exposed high voltage power line. I’m sure the voltage / amperage can be stepped down to something that a drone can use.

Drones, when detecting low battery, would use a map to find the closest power line and then “sit” on a wire like a bird until recharged. This way travelling over longer distances problem can be solved.
