Ameren Illinois is always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the services they provide to their customers in Illinois. One way they're doing this is by implementing the use of drones to help create a more efficient and safe work environment for their workers, allowing them to get the power back on in a quicker and safer manor.
Riley Adams is the Manager of Electric Initiatives at Ameren Illinois, and says one way these drones will help their workers by giving their workers a birds eye views on potential problems with the regions power lines.
One thing that helps improve the efficiency of the drones is that the pilots are from the area, and know where to look already for potential problems.
Adams appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
