This is a house so the Ethernet cable should be made from unshielded
twisted pairs, but it still shouldn't be a problem.  The line
(50Hz?) is low enough that the twisted pairing should eliminate the

The only problem would be unwanted noise on the power line, which
would be caused by noise electronic equipment and large switched
loads.  Noisy equipment will probably not be a problem because that
type of noise that would cause you a problem is well regulated.  Noise
from a large switched load (air conditioner or refrigerator
starting/stopping) is in short, infrequent bursts so I doubt you will
even notice them.
