Dominion Partners with PrecisionHawk
Dominion Energy is a power and energy company that operates in 16 states and maintains over 6,600 miles of overhead electric transmission lines in Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia. Dominion, like most utilities, wanted to improve their operations through better data, safer processes, and more environmentally-friendly practices.
When PrecisionHawk approached the utility about a drone-based solution, Dominion listened. Here’s how Dominion Energy achieved their goals by partnering with PrecisionHawk.
- PrecisionHawk found 42% more areas of concern
- Dominion set a new safety record of .62
- The project saved an estimated 500 flight hours, along with 2,000 gallons of jet fuel

“The additional detail has been a bonus for us, our goal was to at least be able to duplicate what a helicopter does— it's less intrusive to our customers, there's a better environmental footprint, it’s potentially safer, and it was nice to get the additional angles and able to pick up on additional defects.”
