To improve system reliability, Hawai‘i Electric Light Company will conduct aerial line inspections of its major overhead transmission lines through Thursday, July 14, 2016.

The islandwide inspections are scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. However, exact times and routes will depend on weather conditions.

Inspections will be conducted in a Manuiwa Airways helicopter and require the aircraft to fly low and slowly, which may cause some noise disturbances.

Hawai‘i Electric Light apologizes for any disruptions this may cause and sincerely thanks the community for their cooperation and understanding.

If there are any questions or concerns, call 969-6666.
