Cables & Wires to be Buried after Hurricanes

This petition had 26,913 supporters

The time has come to bury the electrical power distribution lines in Florida.

A great majority of power outages are caused by fallen trees on overhead distribution lines after hurricanes.

We, the undersigned, petition for existing overhead lines to be installed underground.

The most important benefits are:
1. Drastically reduced power outages.
2. Improved public safety.
3. Improved reliability.
4. Improved aesthetics.

We are aware that utility underground conversion programs are costly. However, every time a prolonged power outage occurs, the public deserves improved reaction.

Good leadership is needed to undertake this monumental task. We cannot continue living in the 21st century while still using 19th century infrastructure.

Mr. Rick Scott, bury those lines!
