NATIONAL GRID AERIAL INSPECTIONS HELP POWER SYSTEM RELIABILITY

 

 

Please note that National Grid will be conducting aerial inspections of sub transmission electric lines in Rhode Island communities on Wednesday, May 31, 2017  and Thursday June 1, 2017 between 8AM and  5PM.

 

Helicopter flyovers will identify and address potential problems in the sub transmission lines before they impact electric service for customers.  These aerial inspections complement the regularly-conducted, ground-level inspections by quickly and efficiently covering National Grid's sub transmission system, even across rugged and isolated terrain.

 

The helicopter inspections are conducted by experienced trained personnel using high-powered gyroscopic binoculars and infrared technology. They are particularly interested in signs of wear on power line conductors and lightning protection devices; damaged or leaning structures; loose or broken guy wires; broken, chipped or cracked insulator equipment; and trees leaning toward the lines or into the transmission corridors.

 

In the event of an inclement weather day, an alternate date is Friday June 2nd.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or your Ngrid Community Manager.

 

Regards,

Lori J Spangler

Democrats are filing a massive lawsuit that claims there was a Trump-Russia conspiracy that stole the 2016 presidential election. The DNC is suing the Trump presidential campaign, the Russian government and WikiLeaks. A lawsuit was filed in New York City today and seeks millions of dollars in damages.        President Trump is again going after former FBI Director James Comey in a string of tweets. The president writes "So General Michael Flynn's life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third rate book (that should never have been written). Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work?" Comey's memos detailing his interactions with Trump were turned over to Congress yesterday and quickly leaked to the media.        Thousands of students across the country are walking out of class today to advocate for gun control. It comes a month after a national walkout over the mass shooting that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida. Meanwhile, a 19-year-old is being charged with shooting a 17-year-old student at Central Florida high school today. The victim was hit in the ankle but is expected to be OK.        The brother of Stephon Clark, the unarmed black man killed by Sacramento police, is facing charges for making threats. Authorities say Stevante Clark was booked on allegations of making felony threats and for making harassing phone calls to 9-1-1. He's expected to appear in court today. Stephon Clark was shot and killed by Sacramento police last month when officers mistook his cell phone for a gun.       A teacher in Orange County, California is facing charges for allegedly having a "kill list" of Jewish community members. Twenty-six-year-old Nicholas Rose reportedly told a family member earlier this week about his desire to kill Jewish people, and that relative called police. Officers went to Rose's home and say they found anti-Semitic pamphlets, the hit list, ammunition and papers referencing churches and a synagogue in Irvine and Lake Forest.        Berlin, Germany is safe after a live bomb from World War Two was defused. The discovery of the weapon forced ten-thousand people to evacuate the heart of the German capital this morning. Police evacuated people from apartment buildings, hospitals, office buildings, and the central train station.
