Mylar Balloons and Kites can damage SWEPCO lines

AEP Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) reminds its customers that metallic coatings on mylar helium balloons and on kites can cause damage to SWEPCO’s electrical system

and cause power losses, emphasizing the need to make sure these objects are not allowed to interfere in the lines. See the April 10 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details.
