Advantages of Undergrounding

Safe
A pool skimmer waved high in the air or branches too close to power lines . these can spell trouble. An underground system helps reduce the risk of accident.

Attractive
With their unobstructed views and potential for beautiful green spaces, neighborhoods with underground lines are hard to resist. With more room for planting, you'll be able to create a backyard with greater privacy. And since there's no need for servitudes (rights of access), you can easily add a patio, a swimming pool or a garden shed.

Worthwhile
It's a known fact: trees add beauty and value to a property. They also have a cooling and calming effect on public streets. With an underground distribution system, there are no poles or overhead lines, so there's no need to prune or fell trees to meet standards and regulations, which is appealing to buyers looking for property with mature trees and varied vegetation. And resale values tend to be higher in neighborhoods with underground systems.
