Drone-aided power line and utility pole inspections
CoServ is always looking for ways to be proactive and efficient when it comes to maintaining our electric infrastructure.
One way that we do that is with our DJI Matrice 300 drone. Operated by FAA-licensed Power Quality Technicians, the drone can quickly and easily inspect our power lines, utility poles and other equipment to look for problems.
A single drone flight could fly over dozens of poles in minutes, looking for problems that would take hours or even days for crews climbing poles. By being proactive, CoServ was able to schedule linemen to replace the equipment or make repairs as part of their normal shifts. Ultimately, this prevents outages before they happen.
This is just another way that CoServ goes the extra mile to serve our Members with affordable and reliable energy.
