ITC Aerial Helicopter Inspection Seeks To Keep The Electricity Flowing To Michigan

ANN ARBOR – ITC took MITechNews.Com Editor Mike Brennan up in a helicopter Friday that over-flew at a low altitude miles of high-voltage power lines to demonstrate what happens when the electric transmission company does it semi-annual aerial inspections.

The lines are operated by ITC’s Michigan operating entities, ITCTransmission and Michigan Electric Transmission Company, LLC (METC).

The aerial inspections are covering the southwest part of the state, including all or parts of Ingham, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne Counties.
