We help convert overhead lines to underground

BC Hydro's Beautification Fund provides financial assistance to municipal governments for conversion of overhead service to underground facilities to enhance and improve the use of public spaces.

See our Beautification Fund brochure [PDF, 2.0 MB] for more information and to apply. Applications must be submitted by September 30 to be considered for the following year.
