Neue Begründung: Reasons
1. Earth cables are in contrast to power lines sustainable, reliable and visually inconspicuous.
2. Swiss Federal Court: Case Riniken AG - Judgment 1 C 398/2011
Judgement BGE 137 II 266
The judgment removes all previous negative views of the underground cable.
3. No forest fire danger. Example Northern California: Location Paradise 86 deaths at "Camp Fire" in the summer of 2018. Pacific Gas & Electric Co - Largest US energy supplier went bankrupt January 2019!
4. E-smog: with lateral distance dramatic decrease in field strength; a few meters are enough.
5. Transmission losses with underground cables are approx. 50% lower!
6. larger diameters are possible with earth cable.
7. The reliability of underground cables is 7 times (!) better than overhead lines
(previous claim until then was just the other way around).
8. Ground wiring is only 1.6 times more expensive than an overhead line (previous claim until then was 11-40 times)
9. The transport losses of a ground cabling are 3-4 times lower than for an overhead line and must be credited for a period of 80 years. (previously disregarded)
10. The soil warming amounts to maximum 1 ° C (previous assertion 4-8 ° C)
