On May 24th and 25th, Meridian Tech provided sUAS (drone) training to 9 Sho-Me Power employees including Linemen, Sub Mechanics, and Engineers. We plan to use drones for many things including spot inspections, thermal imagery for hot spot detection, and 3D modeling. We have high hopes for the implementation of a drone program at Sho-Me Power and it is exciting to see new tools and technology make our mission of delivering Safe, Reliable, Low Cost power more achievable than ever.
