The semiannual inspection is an important part of the company’s ongoing commitment to providing reliable electric service. The work involves the use of a helicopter equipped with heat-sensing, infrared scanning technology which can detect potential equipment issues before they occur.
The aerial inspections started Wednesday and will continue through March 1. They will take place from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., and will include Bethel, Brookfield, Danbury, Darien, Greenwich, Monroe, Newtown, Norwalk, Redding, Ridgefield, Shelton, Stamford, Westport, and Wilton.
There are two Eversource helicopters. One is blue and silver, the other is blue and white.
