CLIMATE CHANGE & EXTREME WIND
Electric infrastructure is expensive, expansive and built to last decades. Recent increases in the frequency and severity of extreme weather and climate events has challenged it to withstand an entirely new set of environmental conditions - most of which it was never engineered to endure in the first place. The resulting acceleration of the maintenance timeline has stretched human and monetary resources to the max. The safety of the system is suffering greatly. Trust Powerline to be your eyes and ears for every type of emergency.
ELECTRIC UTILITY INDUSTRY CHALLENGES
Hundreds of thousands of miles of electric distribution and transmission assets cover urban and rural landscapes alike.
Utility infrastructure is aging and in many cases accurate maintenance records do not exist to efficiently direct maintenance strategies.
Current monitoring techniques are time intensive and do not provide the level of real-time intelligence on individual assets needed to drive strategic preventative maintenance or efficient emergency response.
DEVELOPMENT IN REMOTE AREAS
Increased development in the wildland-urban interface has placed more people in the path of wildfire destruction. One failed asset can prove deadly in minutes.
