underground power before and after shots, overhead electricity poles have been removed from a street that slops toward the ocean. The sun sets on the horizon, spilling it's last rays into the vast ocean. Roofs dotted with solar panels humm their last glow, there is a calmness that begs the question "how can this sea side residential life truly exist? What sacrifices have been made to get here? Does the calm in the last light of the day echo inside these homes?" Maybe the wind whispers, maybe.

The Targeted Underground Power Program (TUPP) was launched by the Minister for Energy on 7 November 2022 at Robinson Reserve in Tuart Hill. The TUPP will replace the State Underground Power Program (SUPP) and continue its work of replacing existing overhead power lines in established residential areas with underground cabling.
