i have been pulling my hair out for ears with this puzzle & have not had much luck in solving it.
but the only way i can see it done is to get    
g.w.e to houses 1.2.3 but leave electric out of  
one house & use solar power instead.

there is NO solution on a plane without passing one of the lines through one of the houses.  otherwise, you'd have to use a sphere or torus to complete the puzzle.
