Buried power lines

If you have overhead power lines on your farm, consider burying them.

Buried power lines:

  • eliminate the danger of farm equipment coming in contact with overhead power lines;
  • prevent the possibility of lines coming down in storms;
  • improve the appearance of the farm yard.

Our Go Underground Program compensates a portion of the costs related to moving power lines underground in farm yards.

The program covers 50 per cent of installation costs up to a maximum of $10,000 for farm residents to bury existing overhead power lines.

In the case of new construction on agricultural land, we will pay 25 per cent of total costs up to a maximum of $10,000.

For more information on underground power lines, contact your local office. We can provide you with a cost estimate and ensure that the installation is done safely.
