The first line of defence will be to install an a.c. line filter between the 
power meter and your service entrance box.  They might read the electric 
meter, but not anything that is going on inside the house.

You could also try coupling rf of your own into the power line.  I have seen 
articles describing how it was done by hams during WW2 for local cw contacts 
after ham radio was shut down for the war.
