Beautification Fund

BC Hydro


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.


Municipal governments.


The Beautification Fund contributes one-third of our estimated project cost with the remaining two-thirds to be arranged by the municipality. Cost sharing is based on the original project scope*, and generally limited to:
  • work on equipment owned and maintained by BC Hydro on public roads or rights-of-way across private property
  • construction of temporary overhead lines needed during the conversion
  • restoration of roads, lawns, etc. to a similar condition as prior to the project
For undergrounding projects, payments must be made in advance before construction begins.

*Not included: costs for work on private property and work to relocate other utility attachments such as telecom cables.
