Tampa Electric is committed to providing reliable, cost-effective electricity to you and your neighbors in northeast Hillsborough County.
You may remember that Tampa Electric is upgrading the power equipment in your neighborhood, including building a new 8-mile-long 230-kilovolt (kV) power line. I have important news about this project.

To help reduce the impact of the work, Tampa Electric will use helicopters to perform work along some sections of this project. Helicopters shorten the time needed to do the work safely, reduce the number of trucks on roadways and diminish traffic disruptions.
Helicopters will hover close to the newly installed transmission structures and will make multiple trips across the area. While working, the helicopters will remain within Tampa Electric's rights of way. Residents may hear helicopter noise for several hours on intermittent weekdays along some sections of the line in April and May.
This will reduce road closures and traffic detours needed to complete the work. For more information, please call 813-630-6295.
