  1. Helicopters used to conduct forestry inspections in JCP&L power transmission line corridors

    Foresters from Jersey Central Power & Light Company ( JCP&L ) will take to the sky to conduct helicopter inspections of transmission lines beginning July 1 as part of the company's annual vegetation management program.  The patrols are scheduled through July 5, weather permitting.  Local law enforcement agencies will be notified before inspections take place.  Helicopters are a cost-effective and efficient way to conduct inspections that help keep JCP&L's high-voltage system durable and reliable.  Residents may see a small helicopter flying at low altitude or hovering over transmission lines and towers while company foresters examine trees and other vegetation in the right-of-way and trees outside the corridor that could potentially cause damage to the electric system.  When a potential tree issue is identified, additional ground-level inspections are scheduled and remedial actions are completed.    JCP&L also performs annual aerial inspections of transmission towers, substations and other electrical equipment.  In addition to the aerial patrols, the company expects to trim trees along 3,400 miles of distribution lines this year at a cost of approximately $28 million as part of its annual tree trimming program to help enhance reliability of service.
