Low flying helicopters to be operating along the Big Sur Coast
for PG&E utility inspections
March 9-12, 8am-5pm
Residents may see or hear helicopters hovering and flying close to the power lines for several minutes at a time throughout the day. The inspections are to observe clearances between vegetation and the power lines so we can ensure we continue to provide safe, reliable, and affordable service. No electric service is expected to be affected by these inspections.
If residents have questions about this work, we encourage you to refer them to the PG&E Customer Outreach Specialist Lizz Williams @ (831) 784-3592. Please note that our work schedule is subject to change and is dependent on safe weather conditions. We appreciate your patience while we complete this important project.
