From June 18 through June 22, PSEG Long Island used a blue-and-yellow Bell Jet Ranger helicopter to conduct aerial equipment inspections. The inspection helicopter hovered above structures on Long Island and the Rockaways for a short duration. Area residents and motorists saw the helicopter hovering near power lines and right of ways (ROWs) and following a flight path along electric transmission ROWs.
From the helicopter, a utility worker surveyed wires and vegetation around ROWs and power lines. PSEG Long Island is committed to providing safe and reliable service for customers. Surveying by helicopter enables better visibility of equipment that poses a challenge to survey from the ground.
