CapeCod.com – Eversource Energy will be conducting helicopter inspections of high voltage electrical equipment on rights-of-way in Eastern Massachusetts next week.
The inspections, which begin Monday, are expected to occur on the South Shore and South Coast in the middle of the week before finishing up on the Cape by the end of the week.
The overhead inspections allow engineers to detect potential problems in advance.
The helicopter is equipped with a high-resolution camera and may hover over certain equipment for up to five minutes.
The work will be done between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting.
The vehicle is a white jet ranger with a blue stripe with a registration number of 37WA.
Oooh so fun! There’s nothing better than waking up at 7 a.m. to a helicopter hovering directly over your house for up to 5 minutes. That should be priceless. I guess now we know why our rates nearly doubled, helicopter fuel isn’t cheap.
It makes perfect sense if you think about it though, they’ve been using pesticides instead of weed wackers to clear the lines and pollute the ground under Cape Cod for years, they might as well use a helicopter to pollute the air above it while they are at it.
