The pilot reported that while patrolling on the right side of the transmission power lines, about 120 ft above the ground and a ground speed about 35-40 knots, he heard the engine rpm decrease. He looked towards the instrument panel and noted that the low rotor RPM light was illuminated and heard the aural low RPM alert. After unsuccessfully completing remedial actions to regain rotor rpm, the pilot initiated an autorotation to a nearby landing area. The helicopter landed hard, which resulted in substantial damage to the airframe and minor injuries to both POB.
