Are you still having apprehensions whether to choose underground electrical cable over overhead electrical cable? While both of these cabling systems can provide the same power supply there are a lot of benefits for opting on underground electrical cabling system and here are some of them.
If you will compare the installation of underground electrical cable and overhead electrical cable the underground cables offer a better view because the cables installed are completely invisible. The power lines are hidden and won’t create an obstruction to any view. Aside from that, the underground electrical cable is good to the environment because they don’t need to use huge poles during the installation unlike the overhead power towering wooden or metal poles are needed to connect electrical lines.
Fewer resources needed
The resource materials needed for underground electrical cable are fewer if compared to the quantity of materials that the overhead power lines will require. With underground power cabling, the need for posts is eliminated. No need to worry about the supply of logs, digging the ground and burying them just to install power lines. The entire process of underground power lines installation will only require pipes or ducts, so the overhead cost for this project is not expensive.
Uninterruptible power supplies
Another amazing benefit of underground electrical cable installation is the guaranteed uninterruptible power supplies. Since, the power lines are installed underground any bad weather condition or external element present in our environment (overgrown tree, strong wind) will not disrupt the quality of power supply. Users of underground power cabling system can enjoy stable power connection at all times.
Yes, this is one of the benefits that underground electrical cable promise to deliver to all end-users that opted for this type of power lines installation – safer. Why? First, the electrical power lines are secured underground, so need to fear of direct contact with high voltage power lines. Second, unlike the overhead cabling system where power lines may become loose due to strong winds or fallen trees, the underground power cables aren’t exposed, eliminating the risks of injuries and deaths that downed power lines can cause to any human being.
Will underground electrical power cables applicable anywhere?
There are cases wherein the underground electrical cabling system may not work. A location situated with water source like waterways may not be a suitable place to install underground power cables. It’s crucial that an expert will assess the location prior installation of underground electrical cable.
