Energy Safety Issues Annual Report on Compliance for Horizon West Transmission’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 Horizon West Transmission (HWT). Energy Safety’s evaluation found that HWT was largely successful in executing an actionable and adaptive plan for wildfire risk mitigation.

Energy Safety has identified areas for improvement and continued learning, including improving its reporting capabilities. Energy Safety will continue to monitor HWT’s implementation of its ongoing wildfire mitigation activities and push HWT to improve its ability to ultimately achieve the elimination of utility-caused catastrophic wildfires in California.

Energy Safety is required to conduct an annual assessment of the electrical corporations’ implementation of their approved WMPs and WMP Updates.

ARCs for Liberty Utilities, PacifiCorp, Trans Bay Cable, Bear Valley Electric Service, Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas & Electric were released on June 21, June 6, April 23, April 3, and March 19, respectively. Energy Safety’s ARC on Pacific Gas and Electric’s approved 2021 WMP Update is scheduled to be released in the coming weeks. This will conclude the 2021 ARCs for California’s electrical corporations.
