If you’re a transmission planner or engineer, this is your future! Using transportation corridors for HVAC and HVDC underground transmission lines makes sense! Read this excellent “Deep Dive”.

Here’s an interesting quote.

“Undergrounding HVDC lines along the ROWs would be more expensive than today's predominantly overhead AC lines, but the Seam study showed the benefits would quickly cover the costs, he said. That is because it is more efficient to use fewer HVDC wires to carry much larger capacities of electricity over longer distances.”

One of my favorite projects (mentioned in the article) is the SOO Green HVDC UG project along railroad rights of way. See Let’s start building our future.
