Transmission lines are located as high as 100 feet in the air and the view from a helicopter offers the utility's engineers a close look at potential problems.
“Over a million customers in Connecticut depend on us every day for reliable electric service,” said Craig Hallstrom, Regional Electric Operations President at Eversource. “These helicopter inspections of our transmission lines are a crucial part of our commitment to reducing the frequency and duration of power outages.”
Eversource’s aerial inspections are scheduled to begin Monday in the Wallingford/Southington area. The helicopters will then head north and east to Windham County
By mid-week, the transmission line inspectors will have moved on to Tolland and New London counties. By the end of the week, the work will have moved on to Middlesex and Litchfield counties.
The inspection will take place between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.each day.
