Blue & silver helicopter, tail # N1431W

Eversource will conduct the inspections in a blue & silver helicopter.

Eversource is currently conducting aerial inspections of high-voltage electrical equipment on rights of way throughout Connecticut. This 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 this week and continue through February 28. Weather permitting; flights will take place from 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The inspections will be done in rights of way in cities and towns including Greenwich.
