Comparative cost data[edit]

There is some comparative cost data on the cost of constructing submarine power cables vs. overhead AC cables in the New York Times source that I used to cite several other article claims today. I've not yet taken the time to stub out a cost section for this WP article. This is yet to be done. Anyone have other sources? Worldwide project cost data?

Design Technologies[edit]

The Design Technologies section is not about submarine power cables specifically but about AC vs. DC electrical power transmission. While a quick overview of electrical power transmission and the reason for using AC or DC could be helpful but not useful to viewers this section takes up the bulk of the page and is not directly relevant to submarine power cables. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:57, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

I have put the former content of Design Technologies (comparison of AC and DC) into a new chapter (Selection of AC or DC), and added new content to the design chapter. I suggest to remove the old content from this article.(comment added 4.1.2017 by Worzyk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Worzyk (talkcontribs) 21:27, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
