Safety and reliability, year-round

We work 24/7 to keep the power on safely and reliably, even in extreme weather. That’s why we’re building our system to be more resilient long term for all seasons and weather conditions. We’re investing nearly half a billion dollars across our system in wildfire mitigation strategies over the coming years. This includes developing an industry-leading meteorology program, rebuilding portions of the grid with equipment upgrades, and using advanced technology to monitor the system while increasing inspections and vegetation maintenance on our lines.

It’s all part of our commitment to continue delivering reliable service now and for decades to come.

Our ongoing work to increase safety and resiliency in your community

What we're doing

Backed by a big investment and a targeted, informed strategy, we're hardening our grid from end to end.

Enhanced safety settings

In areas with elevated fire risk, we may place electrical equipment on more sensitive settings. 

Public Safety Power Shutoff

In response to elevated fire-risk conditions, we may proactively turn off power in specific areas.

Emergency de-energization

When wildfires get too close to our equipment we will do an emergency de-energization, shutting off power to our lines to reduce wildfire risk.
