Xcel Energy has announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with the Federal Aviation
Administration to research the safe operation of drone technology to inspect critical
infrastructure. The agreement involves using unmanned aircraft systems to inspect more
than 20,000 miles of Xcel Energy transmission lines in 10 states. The data collected from
diverse climates, conditions and geographies will be used by the federal agency to secure
the nation’s airspace now and in the future.
