Eliminates need to acquire new rights of way

Replaces overhead transmission lines when environmental and other concerns prohibit their installation

I gather that you understand Yurek to be suggesting that by using the rights of way of the overhead cable it would be more economical to place underground HTS cable in those rights of way? I haven't heard that directly but sure sounds promising if true. I listened to the conf call pretty closely and didn't get that message as clearly as you seem to have. So far my impression was that the Detroit installation, where they were simply replacing HTS cable for copper, was the primary application vs brand new digging. I could well be wrong and sure hope I am.
