Energy Safety Issues Annual Report on Compliance for SDG&E’s Approved 2021 Wildfire Mitigation Plan Update

SACRAMENTO – The Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety (Energy Safety) today issued its Annual Report on Compliance (ARC) for San Diego Gas & Electric’s (SDG&E) 2021 Wildfire Mitigation Plan (WMP) Update.

Energy Safety’s evaluation found SDG&E undertook significant effort to reduce its wildfire risk, and in many instances, SDG&E achieved its objectives and targets. On balance, SDG&E was largely successful in executing an actionable and adaptive plan for wildfire risk mitigation. There are, however, still areas for improvement and continued learning.

Energy Safety is required to conduct an annual assessment of the electrical corporations’ implementation of their approved WMPs and WMP Updates. Additional ARCs on approved 2021 WMP Updates for the remaining seven electrical corporations are scheduled to be released in the coming weeks.
