Eversource is conducting aerial inspections of its high-voltage electric equipment and lines in Connecticut. This annual inspection is an important part of the company’s ongoing commitment to providing reliable energy to customers. The work involves the use of a helicopter flying low over transmission lines to detect any potential equipment issues before system reliability is impacted. __________
