NASHVILLE, TN — Nashvillians in the central, west, and northeast areas of the city may notice low flying aircraft traveling along Nashville Electric Service (NES) transmission lines October 29 and 30. Cameras aboard the aircraft will inspect and capture data along the transmission system serving the Bellevue, Davidson Road, Green Hills, Harpeth Hills, Sharondale, Vanderbilt, Whites Creek, Bordeaux, and the stadium areas for possible system improvements.
Weather permitting, one helicopter and one small airplane will fly from 350 to 2000 feet above ground level on October 29 and 30. Every attempt will be made to keep the noise level and distractions to a minimum. This is the second phase of a multi-year project to examine the entire NES transmission system.
Nashville Electric Service (NES) is one of the 12 largest public electric utilities in the nation, distributing energy to more than 360,000 customers in Middle Tennessee. Founded in 1939, NES is proud to be celebrating 75 years as a community partner and service provider. For more information, visit www.nespower.com.
