To improve system reliability, Hawaiian Electric will conduct quarterly aerial inspections of its major overhead transmission lines from Monday, Mar. 22, to Thursday, Mar. 25, 2021.

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 slow which may cause some noise disturbances.

Hawaiian Electric apologizes for any disruption this may cause and sincerely thanks the community for their cooperation and understanding.

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