Cover Story: Burying power lines

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte's power struggle could soon be over.

Duke Energy wants to bury power lines around the city, which has the potential of reducing the impact of an outage.

Duke Energy is looking for cities it can split the costs with by half.  Charlotte is competing with 17 other cities for the pilot program and Monday night the City Council is hearing what the city will do if it's selected.
