Eversource is conducting aerial inspections of high voltage electrical equipment on rights-of-way in north central Connecticut. This inspection is an important part of the company’s ongoing commitment to providing reliable electric service. The work involves the use of low flying helicopters equipped with high-resolution cameras, which can detect potential equipment issues before they occur.
“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.”
