Hurricane season officially began June 1, and JCP&L has completed Inspections and will continue to improve Maintenance in preparation of storms. 

  • Helicopters and ground-based teams are utilized to inspect transmission lines and look for potential tree-related issues, damaged wires, broken cross arms, failed insulators and switches and other hardware problems.
  • Trimming trees along transmission and distributions lines will occur throughout the upcoming months, and any other potential reliability issues identified during the work are safely and quickly addressed.
  • Inspections have included the use of thermovision cameras to capture infrared images that can detect potential problems with equipment such as transformers and capacitors.
