Do companies rent out land for power lines?

I'm trying to buy some land but it has these huge power lines in the back. I'm going to get the land either way but I just want to know if they rent put part of the land for the power lines and how much are they paying for it?

    If it's a major power line they probably own the land.  Otherwise they have an easement.
