PECO inspects 10,000 miles of transmission line

PECO has invested more than $500,000 to complete its annual inspection of 1,885 circuits and more than 10,000 miles of aerial electric transmission lines across the region. This work is part of the company’s ongoing maintenance and electric service efforts to help keep the lights on for customers.

The program includes visual inspection of PECO’s aerial electric system to look for potential issues like damaged equipment and sagging lines. Infrared cameras also are used to identify potential future issues before they occur by recording temperature variations within a piece of equipment while it is in operation.

These inspections are part of PECO’s overall preventative maintenance program, which includes regular inspection of equipment on the company’s natural gas and electric systems, including manholes, underground cables, transformers, substations and other electrical equipment.
