Energy Safety Issues Annual Report on Compliance for Bear Valley Electric Service’s Approved 2021 Wildfire Mitigation Plan Update

Energy Safety today issued its Annual Report on Compliance (ARC) for the approved 2021 Wildfire Mitigation Plan (WMP) Update of Bear Valley Electric Service (BVES).


Energy Safety’s evaluation found that BVES undertook significant efforts to reduce its wildfire risk, and in many instances, BVES achieved its objectives and targets. On balance, BVES 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.


ARCs for Southern California Edison (SCE) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) were released on April 3 and March 19. Additional ARCs on approved 2021 WMP updates for the remaining five electrical corporations are scheduled to be released in the coming weeks.
