Colorado Springs has 70% of it’s electric distribution underground. This recent TV news report says the utility will underground this heavily traveled corridor that connects “critical infrastructure” …..a hospital and a power plant.

The news report conveys several of the advantages of underground and even comments on some of the challenges.

See my whitepaper entitled “Critical Infrastructure for Critical Times” that discusses the need for resilience for crucial loads like hospitals and first responders AND redefines microgrids.
