I never did understand why power cables weren't run in underground conduits in this day and age, is it some sort of technical limitation?
My mother has underground cables to her home in the UK, but the main lines are of course still over ground. I can't imagine that it's cheaper to
build and maintain towers for cables than it is to dig a trench and run some plastic conduit, but I could be wrong, does anyone know?
Burying the cables would negate many of the issues caused by weather in a very simple way.
To everyone affected, hope you and your loved ones stay safe.
