Power Line Inspections to Begin Next Week
JCP&L to evaluate where maintenance is needed on overhead transmission lines.
Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) will begin inspections on all overhead transmission lines on Sept. 24.
Inspections are expected to last until Oct. 2, depending on weather.
The inspections are part of the company's $200 million program to meet the increased demands of electricity and increase reliability in 2012. During the inspections, helicopters may be seen hovering near transmission lines and substations.
JCP&L does the overhead inspections twice a year to identify areas in need of maintenance and trims trees that may be in danger of impacting the power lines.
