HELCO to Conduct Aerial Checks of Transmission Lines Next Month
If you hear a helicopter flying low in your neighborhood during the early portion of December, have no fear, it’s only your local electric company.
To improve system reliability, Hawaiian Electric will conduct quarterly aerial inspections of its major overhead transmission lines from Monday, Dec. 6 to Friday, Dec. 10, 2021.
The island-wide 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. If there are any questions or concerns, call 808-969-6666.
