A Partnership to Keep Long Island’s Lights On

Fortunately, there are smart people at ULC Robotics of Hauppauge who have developed a better way to inspect and maintain our overhead wires – by using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) — commonly known as “drones”.  They are mounted with high tech cameras and having this “bird’s-eye view” means trouble spots can be identified and fixed faster, either by replacing equipment or targeting tree-trimming and vegetation management to where it is needed most.

ULC Robotics has partnered with PSEG Long Island since 2016 to provide inspections and maintenance utilizing high-quality visual assessments with limited disruption, faster and without having to place people in potentially hazardous situations.
