Eversource completes overhead inspection of high-voltage lines in Stonington, North Stonington



STONINGTON — Eversource spokesman Frank J. Poirot said the utility  completed its aerial inspection of high-voltage lines on Wednesday morning in southeastern Connecticut, including portions of a line that runs parallel to the shoreline in parts of Stonington and North Stonington.

The inspection helicopter used heat-sensing imaging equipment to identify any problems with the electrical lines and related equipment. “With more than 800 miles of transmission rights of way in Connecticut, these helicopter inspections are a crucial and effective part of our commitment to reducing the frequency and duration of power outages,” said Craig Hallstrom, president of regional electric operations for Eversource.
