Publication Initiates Public Review and Comment Period
Sacramento – The Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety (Energy Safety) today released its draft decision on PacifiCorp’s 2023-2025 Wildfire Mitigation Plan (WMP). Publication of the draft initiates a 30-day public review and comment period.
Opening comments must be received no later than Jan. 17. Reply comments must be received no later than Jan. 29. All comments must be submitted to Energy Safety’s e-filing system and the 2023-2025 Wildfire Mitigation Plans docket (2023-2025-WMPs).
In April, Energy Safety held a public workshop on the 2023-2025 WMP submissions from small and multi-jurisdictional utilities, including PacifiCorp. The electrical corporations made presentations and stakeholders were able to ask questions.
In September, Energy Safety issued a revision notice for PacifiCorp’s 2023-2025 WMP. In issuing the revision notice, Energy Safety required PacifiCorp to address several critical issues in its original WMP. In October, PacifiCorp revised its plan in response to the revision notice. Public comments on PacifiCorp’s revised WMP were solicited until mid-November.
Energy Safety’s final decision on PacifiCorp’s 2023-2025 WMP will be released in mid-February.
