Underground Power Connections
Moving overhead power cables underground is an easy way to decrease power outages caused by weather, traffic collisions and other events.
While overhead distribution systems offer ease of access if a problem were to arise, when the appropriate underground cable is properly installed and protected, it can have a long service life without issues.
Underground power delivery is now compulsory on all new buildings, and those undergoing major renovations, with an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 new homes being connected to underground power supplies each year throughout Australia.
Benefits of underground power connections
Underground wiring offers superior protection compared to overhead lines. Insulated covers protect the wiring from weather conditions and they have minimum interference, so they offer a long service life when installed correctly.
We recommend underground power connections for a number of reasons:
Better protection against weather conditions
Much more aesthetically appealing
Avoids damage from animals
No poles taking up property space
