  • SCE's Wildfire Mitigation Plan

    Southern California Edison (SCE) has submitted its 2023-2025 Wildfire Mitigation Plan to California’s Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety. The plan builds on our wildfire mitigation efforts to date, incorporates the lessons learned from prior years and reflects SCE’s continued commitment to reducing wildfire risk and promoting public safety in the communities we serve.


    Since 2018, SCE has reduced the probability of wildfires associated with utility equipment by 75%-80%. This has been accomplished by implementing a range of grid hardening and operational strategies, include installing approximately 4,400 miles of covered conductor, inspecting, trimming, or removing over 1.9 million trees to prevent vegetation from coming into contact with electrical equipment, conducting over 1 million equipment inspections in High Fire Risk Areas and deploying over 1,620 weather stations and 180 high-definition wildfire cameras.


    SCE’s 2023-25 plan includes grid hardening primarily through the installation of covered conductor, enhanced vegetation management and advanced monitoring/alert systems. The plan expands our partnership with county fire agencies to provide year-round aerial fire suppression from the Quick Reaction Force. By the end of 2025, SCE plans to install more than 2,850 additional miles of covered conductor and replace more than 7,200 miles of overhead distribution power lines in high fire risk areas with covered conductor.
