Some properties already have underground power from the front of the property to the meter box; do these owners still pay for the project?

Yes, even though there is underground power within some properties, around 85% of the cost of the project is for the new underground network being installed to replace the old overhead network in the streets that those properties are presently connected to. Owners are still required to contribute to that cost. The local government allows a discount to property owners with existing underground property service connections.
