NYSEG Taking to the Sky to Help Ensure Safe, Reliable Service
Binghamton, NY – NYSEG, a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, will be inspecting high-voltage power lines from low-flying helicopters across portions of Tompkins, Seneca, Schuyler, Cayuga and Tioga counties next week. In the event of inclement weather, the work will be delayed.
“We are conducting routine inspections of our transmission facilities to help ensure safe, reliable delivery of electricity to our customers,” said Mark S. Lynch, president and CEO of NYSEG and RG&E. “These high-voltage power lines are the backbone of our electricity delivery system. Our goal is to spot potential problems and correct them before they inconvenience our customers.”
Lynch said helicopters provide an excellent vantage point for quick and efficient inspection of transmission lines.
