You can try a Bay Laurel (Laurel noblis), grows 6'--12'; Evergreen Sumac (Rhus virens) which grows to 15'; Texas Mountain Laurel (Sophora secundiflora), grows
10'--25', or a Texas Pistache (Pistacia texana) which grows 6'--12'. All should provide year around privacy and yet not grow so large as to interfere with the power lines. Best wishes with your landscape.
