What's wrong here?

One might ask... why? I think it makes sense and it's easier to do than the most obvious way.

Why the solar panel there, is that what's wrong there?

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Indeed. One might ask why would you need it with all that electrical energy at hand - available 24/7.
The point is that's probably much easier to use a solar panel and a battery than to transform some 400kV to the extra low voltage needed.
Also if the device is used for reporting line failures, an independent supply may be needed.

I don’t know if they do the same in Czech rep, but I’ve noticed here more and more mobile phone transmitters on electricity pylons?, surly you would think that interference from the lines would make this impossible???

Current: UK 230V, 50Hz
