Over 40 Berkeley UUDs have been formed and undergrounding completed. Many have been benefited from a sizable contribution from utility company Rule 20 funds. Others have been paid for with developer, other organization or government contributions. Still, others have been funded largely by property owners themselves.
Several hundreds of your neighbors are participating members of BCUU. We invite you to join our organization.
