Aerial patrols play an integral part in Vegetation Management Programs. We can collect the information needed to implement an effective plan to prevent contact with lines and ensure proper clearances.
As Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Regulations and Standards and North American Reliability Corporation (NERC) Compliance issues for electric power lines increase, aerial patrols continue to be the most reliable solution.
