If you are planning future development on property that you own or lease, and you are unsure as to how much power or wiring that site might require in the future, then you may want to consider installing an underground electrical duct bank. Electrical duct banks help landowners by making future construction projects easier and simpler – since you don’t have to re-excavate the entire trench when adding new underground power lines or cabling — and may enhance the value of the property in the future.

What are electrical duct banks?
Electrical duct banks are an important part of a site’s underground infrastructure and are precast concrete conduits that protect underground electrical power lines and other important underground cabling. In a duct bank, data and electrical cables are laid out within PVC conduits that are bundled together.
By installing an electrical duct bank, a landowner, in the future, can then add additional underground power lines and other cabling without having to re-dig the original trench when there underground cabling or power lines were laid. New power lines can then be fed through the duct bank at any time in the future, and continue to be completely protected, which is a better solution than just burying electrical wires.
Where else could I use an electrical duct bank?
The installation of electrical duct banks is also common in projects where you need to install cabling underneath roads, parking lots and other areas that have existing structures.
