The Battle of Undergrounding Transmission

October 7, 2013
Richmond, VA, USA

The costs and benefits of relocating power lines underground is a complicated question. Organizers of the 2013 EEI/NRECA Transmission Siting Workshop brought Dr. Ted Kury, Director of Energy Studies and Roger Anderson of Columbia University together to deliver the keynote presentation in Richmond, Virginia. The speakers elaborated on their respective essays from the Wall Street Journal and addressed questions from the audience. Dr. Kury discussed his position that the costs and benefits of undergrounding vary considerably from one project to the next, and that a uniform policy would likely lead to a waste of resources.
