February 27, 2020, 6:00 AM HST (Updated February 26, 2020, 8:37 PM)

Hawaiian Electric will be conducting quarterly aerial inspections of its overhead transmission lines during the first week of March.

The islandwide inspections are scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day from March 2-5. The inspections are meant to improve system reliability.


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 slow, which may cause some noise disturbances.

If there are any questions or concerns, call 808-969-6666.
