Drones part of overhead line, equipment inspections

As part of inspections of our overhead lines and equipment, multiple CORE contractors will be working with aerial drones in large parts of our service area over the next few months.

The inspections and associated drone activity began in August and are part of CORE’s wildfire mitigation and overall system reliability efforts. Residents within the immediate area of work will be notified via automated phone calls. Personnel conducting the inspections carry CORE credentials and are in contractor vehicles with CORE branding.

We appreciate your understanding as we work to protect our members, employees and distribution system. You can learn more about our comprehensive wildfire mitigation plan here.
