Eversource conducts aerial inspections

Eversource began aerial inspections of high-voltage electrical equipment on July 19 and will continue through July 26. The utility is using a blue and silver helicopter with a tail number of N1431W that may pass over Wilton. Weather permitting, flights will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This is part of a semi-annual inspection of equipment on rights of way throughout Connecticut. The work involves the use of a helicopter equipped with heat-sensing, infrared scanning technology which can detect potential equipment issues before they occur.
