Although underground high voltage cable installation is more costly to install than traditional overhead installation, many business owners are considering this type of infrastructure. This is primarily because the cost of the total expenditure is offset by the multitude of conveniences that it extends to both the commercial and industrial sector.

Many types of industry rely on stable electric power for daily operations. They can't afford extended power outages that will hugely affect their daily business activity. Worse, outages can result in financial setbacks and catastrophic equipment or product damage. This is the problem with overhead power line set-up. Since overhead lines are exposed to harsh weather and other environmental threats, they are easily damaged and can cause recurrent power outages.

On the other hand underground power lines are secure below ground where environmental hazards are non-existent. Plus, the advanced protection system creates a notable reduction in power glitches with style of electric infrastructure.

If businesses study and weigh closely the expenses for this upgrade and maintenance of underground cable networks versus the maintenance costs of overhead power lines, they will see how cost-effective the undergrounding is. With the better protection and significantly less maintenance and repair to underground cables, this is enough to override the initial costs of set up and construction.

The cost of underground high voltage cable installations in Boston, MA can cost more as compared to just the overhead installation. But such cost can be offset by the numerous benefits one could enjoy once the undergrounding of power lines is done.

Given the vital role that electric power plays in our lifestyle, especially in businesses in which electric power is the lifeline, even a momentary power outage can cause a lot of inconvenience. An unannounced power outage can cut down on productivity and shut down equipment causing damages. Consider what could happen if the power outage is days long?

Weather events and natural calamities can be hard on overhead power lines whether it is a strong wind, heavy snowfall, or torrential rains. The power lines strung from electric posts are also more susceptible to damage that can be caused by car accidents. This can all be prevented when power lines are installed underground. With underground power lines, the chances of damage from the above listed events are minimal because the lines are fully protected.

Even an hour long power outage can cause economic loss as well as health, safety, and security consequences. Underground high voltage cable networks help prevent this. To find out more about underground high voltage cable installation, contact ElecComm.

Underground High Voltage Cable Installations are More Aesthetic and More Effective - Plymouth, MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 14, 2016

Because downed overhead power lines create such a hassle in winter, underground high voltage cable installation is becoming a more practical option. Instead of having overhead powerlines hanging that are exposed to the damaging elements, the cables are being installed underground which keeps them well protected from the issues caused by winter storms. As a result the occurrence or frequency of power outages caused by downed lines is significantly decreased.

Technological advancements are incorporated into the installation and configuration of underground power lines to ensure that they remain functional and perform better than overhead power lines, particularly in terms of capacity and reliability. Underground installation is a more efficient replacement for overhead power lines. At a glance, it may seem that the biggest benefit to underground lines is only performed for aesthetic purposes. But taking a look at the bigger picture, you will see that they serve a more significant purpose making electrical power lines less susceptible to environmental factors that can lead to power interruptions. Less maintenance means a decrease in operational costs of the cables over their lifetime.

There are many factors to consider and procedures to follow in order to make underground installation successful. This is why ElecComm technicians are the specialists in underground high voltage cable installation in Plymouth, MA; with the required knowledge and skills to do the job correctly.
