Atlantic City Electric Using Helicopter and Infrared Technology to Inspect Regional Power Lines

Proactive inspections support company’s delivery of safe, reliable energy service for customers

Starting this week, Atlantic City Electric will inspect more than 1,300 miles of aerial transmission lines by helicopter and infrared camera in South Jersey. The aerial inspections are part of the company’s ongoing commitment to deliver safe and reliable service for its customers. Atlantic City Electric crews work year-round to proactively review the company’s system and make needed upgrades and improvements. These regular inspections allow the company to proactively locate and repair areas of the energy system, making the system less susceptible to damage during extreme weather and preventing outages for customers.

Inspections are scheduled to take place in the Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Ocean and Salem counties of southern New Jersey. This work is not anticipated to impact energy service in the company’s service area.
