Electric line
air inspections
through Aug. 17
BERLIN — To help ensure customers have reliable power, Eversource is conducting aerial inspections of high-voltage electrical equipment in Connecticut using a helicopter with special heat-sensing imaging equipment.
The overhead inspections allow the energy company to cover vast distances while capturing images not visible to the naked eye. These images identify potential problems with electric lines and related equipment, so the company can make any necessary repairs or upgrades before possible reliability issues arise.
Weather-permitting, these aerial inspections started Aug. 6 and will continue through Aug. 17. They will take place from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., covering all the northeastern Connecticut towns. For identification purposes, the helicopter being used for Eversource’s transmission line inspections is a blue and silver Bell, with a registration number N1431W.
