Convert your overhead service line to underground – request form
If our crews are working in your area, you can convert your overhead service line to underground. The service line is the line running from the power pole to your house.
Benefits of underground power lines
- Outage prevention. Buried lines are less susceptible to damage from animals and falling branches.
- Homeowner safety. Work on your home and yard without worrying about contacting an overhead line.
- Curb appeal. Most customers prefer the cleaner look of underground power lines to overhead.
What is the cost?
If our crews are in the area, we will waive the initial overhead to underground conversion fee of approximately $850 per home. You will be responsible for charges related to trenching and materials, based on the distance from your property line to your meter. For example, if we need to trench 100 feet, the cost would be approximately $1,000. You will need to accept our estimate and pay for the underground installation prior to work starting. You will be responsible for the removal of any abandoned overhead structures attached to your home and associated home repairs. You will need to hire an electrician to upgrade your meter socket for the new underground line.
