Resiliency programs can deliver significant benefits, especially to reduce the frequency or duration of power outages. Power Delivery Intelligence Initiative (PDi2) has published a Utility Infrastructure Resiliency Playbook that focuses specifically on strategic undergrounding as an approach that can provide a positive cost and benefit outcome. Recognizing that undergrounding strategies can be part of an overall resiliency plan that can be difficult to get approved and implemented, the Playbook contains case studies of successful projects and defines key steps to create a program. Download the Playbook for helpful information on developing a resiliency program for your utility. Download today!

This is often what I've heard-- that the costs are so immense, and it's not just the one time costs but the ongoing maintenance costs. But knowing there are use cases really helps in those conversations!
