JCP&L Aerial Inspections to Start on April 14


PARSIPPANY — Foresters from Jersey Central Power & Light Company (JCP&L) will take to the sky to conduct helicopter inspections of transmission lines beginning April 14 as part of the company’s annual vegetation management program.

The patrols are scheduled for approximately two weeks.  Local law enforcement agencies were notified before inspections take place.

Helicopters are a cost-effective and efficient way to conduct inspections that help keep JCP&L’s high-voltage system durable and reliable.  Residents may see a small helicopter flying at low altitude or hovering over transmission lines and towers while company foresters examine trees and other vegetation in the right-of-way and trees outside the corridor that could potentially cause damage to the electric system.

Helicopter information: Black and silver Bell 206 with tail registration number N785CB
