Undergrounding is the process of burying powerlines. PG&E has two programs focused on undergrounding:

Undergrounding as part of our wildfire safety work. This work also includes building stronger overhead equipment. You can learn more about other wildfire safety work when you visit our Community Wildfire Safety Program page.
Rule 20 Program focused on undergrounding powerlines to beautify communities. More information about this program is below.

These efforts make our system safer. Undergrounding reduces ignition risk by nearly 99% in that location.

Expanding our electric system underground will:

Help prevent wildfires caused by equipment
Reduce safety power outages
Decrease the need for future tree work
Improve reliability
Protect the environment
Beautify our hometowns
