West Penn Power to conduct line inspections with helicopter

If you see a helicopter hovering above your house over the next few weeks it may just be a crew from West Penn Power.

The electric company will be flying a helicopter over its service area in Western Pennsylvania for annual line inspections.

Using the helicopter makes it easier for crews to see areas that may need repairs by seeing lines that aren’t easy to access. Using the helicopter gives them a big picture look at any problems such as leaning trees that might not be seen from the ground.

The helicopter will be black and red striped and have the tail registration number N8330P.
