What is an underground service main?

overheads-8

Underground service mains or underground power is the cable that runs to your home or business from the supply network but instead of being ariel, it is placed underground in conduit.

Just like overhead power, underground power can be single phase or 3 phase depending on your needs.

Underground power can be slightly more costly and sometimes access and ground conditions play a part in whether underground power is right for your area.

If you live on a property with lots of trees, going underground can be an option to avoid fallen powerlines in high winds and storms.
