Question about English (US)

Could you correct any strange English here?

According to Professor Williams at Ohio University, one advantage of setting underground cables is that it will cause fewer short and long-duration interruptions / cause long-duration interruptions less often. In summer, when using overhead utility cables, serious blackouts may happen when lightning bolts hit them. He also states that overhead cables make cities look the same, resulting in the lack of diversity in city views/landscapes. Underground cables will have less visual clutter.

However, Ministry of the Environment shows two disadvantages of underground cables. Firstly, it costs a lot to maintain the cables. That's why citizens will need to pay more in tax. In addition, underground cables will probably last as long as overhead cables, and we may need to replace them more often. Finally, it takes much time to complete the construction to build underground cables.
