We're inspecting lines and poles to keep you safe

  • You may see us and our third-party authorized contractors in your neighborhoods and on our easements this summer.
  • You also may see some of our of contractors using drone technology–a safe and efficient way to inspect live power lines from overhead.
  • You also might see the wrong member name on a postcard mailed to you last month (due to a mail merge error from our third-party printing company.)

    • All the inspection info on the cards is still relevant.
    • We apologize for the error and the incorrect names!

Important things to know for wildfire season

  • Check out Live Wildfire Ready for simple, practical, low-cost actions you can take to prepare your home and property for wildfire.
  • Sign up for your county’s emergency alerts – it’s one of the best and fastest ways to stay informed of potentially dangerous events in your area.
  • Know why you might see power “blinks” – our system uses higher sensitivity settings on days with high fire risk to decrease the risk of wildfire ignition.
