Forest Hills Undergrounding

Duke Energy is working hard in your community to improve reliability, reduce outages, strengthen the power grid against severe weather and prepare our system to serve a growing area. As part of this commitment, we are conducting a multiyear grid improvement project in the Forest Hills Community.

Undergrounding lines, improving reliability

Targeted undergrounding (TUG) improves storm response and reliability by using smart data to strategically identify the most outage-prone power lines and move those lines underground. Moving outage-prone lines underground can significantly help reduce power outages and momentary service interruptions, and it can help reduce costs and quicken restoration time after a major event for all customers.
