Students Use Drones To Help NES Electric Crews

Nashville Electric Service and Maplewood High School’s Academy of Energy & Power have teamed up to explore innovative ways to inspect power lines. Maplewood students and NES engineers are flying drones to capture photos and video (see below) of hard to reach poles and electrical equipment.

This one-of-a-kind project was recently spotlighted by several news outlets. Watch the story on NewsChannel 5. Also, be sure to check out our Facebook album for photos from the ground.
