Underground Cable Replacement Project

We’re making progress on our service area-wide Underground Cable Replacement (UGCR) project.

The project started in 2012 with a two-year trial. Over the next 17 years (including the finished pilot), 7,000,000 feet of power lines buried directly in the dirt will be replaced with a more modern, reliable version.
