Pros and Cons of Underground Installation
Underground installations are common and advantageous in commercial spaces. They are able to deliver highly reliable, high load service for cities. However, due to the nature of the approach, investments can be higher, structures are more complicated, and the system has limited flexibility post-install.
Key considerations for underground electrical projects
Every project starts with a thorough planning process. While overhead systems, being readily accessible, can be added to or modified to suit evolving needs, underground systems do not have those advantages. Planning is critical. System location, design, current and future loads, and ongoing maintenance need to be considered.
Once underway, underground electrical projects come with unique challenges, from confined spaces and contact with high voltage lines, to sewage and rodents, and equipment challenges. We approach every project with safety first, and underground projects are no different.
