Wildfire mitigation progress

In 2019, SCE accelerated plans to mitigate wildfire risks associated with its infrastructure. We made substantial progress by year-end 2019 and met or exceeded nearly all our goals in the 2019 Wildfire Mitigation Plan.

Exceeded our goal for replacing 96 circuit miles of overhead power lines with insulated wires, replacing more than 300 miles in 2019

Installed fast-acting fuses at over 10,000 locations (over 7,500 locations in 2019) to reduce electrical currents during the instance of a downed wire

Installed 161 high-definition cameras to monitor SCE's high fire risk area (HFRA) (91 in 2019 alone), reaching saturation point for cameras

Installed 482 weather stations in HFRA (over 350 installed in 2019)

Conducted enhanced inspections on 100% of our overhead distribution and transmission infrastructure in high fire risk areas over approximately five months – work which would have previously been performed over three- or five-year cycle under standard requirements
