PPL to Use Drones to Inspect Electric Lines

Over the next few weeks, contractors with PPL Electric Utilities will use drones to inspect power lines in the Wilkes-Barre area. These drone inspections are safe and efficient, allowing PPL to keep reliability of service high. Drone activity will be limited to power lines only and will not impact individual privacy.

Please contact Ron Karaffa (ron.karaffa@wilkes.edu) or Charlie Cary (charles.cary@wilkes.edu) in Wilkes University’s Facilities Department with any questions.
