Following approval of WMPs, Energy Safety’s Compliance Division is responsible for overseeing compliance with the approved plans. An integral aspect to evaluating compliance with WMPs is conducting audits where an electrical corporation’s records and data are analyzed. As Energy Safety continues to mature its compliance process, all audit-related documents will be available on this page.
Substantial Vegetation Management Audits
This audit is conducted pursuant to California Public Utilities Code Section 8386.3(c)(5)(A) which requires electrical corporations (utilities) to notify Energy Safety after completing substantial portions of vegetation management requirements in their approved Wildfire Mitigation Plans (WMPs) and requires Energy Safety to audit compliance with these requirements. The audits and all associated documents are available in Energy Safety’s E-Filing systems
