Edison plan awaits Federal Aviation Administration: Company has to boost its renewably energy but needs helicopters first

A Southern California Edison plan to bring more renewable energy to the Southland is in a temporary holding pattern as the utility waits for Federal Aviation Administration clearance to allow helicopters to buzz over La CaƱada Flintridge and Pasadena.

Edison had hoped to begin stringing new power lines along local towers this month to accommodate electricity from wind farms near Tehachapi. Edison spokeswoman Marissa Castro-Salvati said workers are still waiting for final approval from the FAA and hope to get an update next week.

“There are two airports that are kind of close by, El Monte and Burbank,” she said. “Even though we're not flying so high … we need those types of clearances.”
