Today 18% of America’s distribution system is underground. But, some progressive public power utilities have as much as 90% of their system underground. For decades they have invested public dollars on underground and today have the empirical operations and maintenance data to support their case for underground. With massive OH to UG conversion and strategic undergrounding programs underway across the country there is much to learn about transitioning from an overhead utility to an underground utility. This panel of utility experts will discuss their journey to underground and best practices for operations and maintenance of distribution underground.

Hope to see you there! Have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season.
