SDG&E的野火安全进展

Wildfire safety advancements aim to reduce customer impacts and potential wildfire ignitions. 

 

SDG&气象队

SDG&E was the first utility in the country to develop a dedicated Fire Science & 气候适应部. This department includes six full-time meteorologists that are constantly monitoring weather conditions that could lead to wildfire events. 日复一日, they are analyzing weather data using fire behavior modeling software that they created to provide microclimate forecasts to our electric system operators, 还有全国的合伙人.

高级摄像机网络

SDG&E utilizes over 100 cameras to monitor potential wildfire events constantly. This state-of-the art camera network includes 17 high-definition, live-streaming, pan-tilt-zoom cameras that help CAL FIRE more quickly locate and size up wildfires to develop plans of attack for first responders prior to arrival. These cameras and the entire network have become vital to SDG&E .防止野火蔓延.

Drone Technology

As part of our program to reduce the risk of wildfires and to improve our response time during an emergency, we have armed our field team with cutting-edge drone technology. 自2014年以来,无人机被用于:

  • 监测森林火灾 
  • Conduct aerial inspections of electric and gas facilities
  • 查明停电的原因 
  • Check on facilities and equipment in remote areas that are difficult for our ground crews or helicopters to reach 
  • 帮助在崎岖地区串接电缆 
  • Check on trees, plants and construction work done by 3rd parties

Burying overhead power lines helps remove the risk of lines sparking fires during Santa Ana wind events. 这是可持续发展目标的一个重要内容&E减少野火风险的计划. SDG&E has undergrounded more than 60% of overhead powerlines in its service territory. 

We have ongoing efforts to bury more lines, which will help reduce the impact of power outages to communities that are likely to be affected by 公共安全停电.

Since 2007, SDG&E代替了34,000 wood poles with fire-resistant steel poles in our backcountry communities (like Ramona, Julian and Descanso) and throughout our service territory. The fire-hardened steel poles and new electric lines are designed to withstand 85 mph wind speeds. 在某些特定情况下, 它们可以承受时速111英里的大风, reducing the risk of failures and potential sparks on the electric system.

SDG&E is building a more intelligent, modern electric grid. The new Distribution Communication Reliability Improvement (DCRI) project will improve our wireless communications network used to monitor and control the distribution of electricity. 我们要把它建成私人的, high-speed network for use with our Falling Conductor Protection (FCP) technology. FCP technology can quickly de-energize a powerline before it even hits the ground, helping to prevent possible sparks that can start a wildfire.

SDG&E has brought together 40 different groups that are working together to ensure the right communication measures are in place in the event of an emergency situation. We maintain a strong relationship with state and local jurisdictions and agencies, 比如Cal OES和Cal FIRE, to develop plans and warning programs for emergency public notifications before, 野火发生期间和之后. 

Additionally, we work with over 560 nonprofit organizations to educate and prepare residents of our service territory about wildfire safety.

Have You Seen It?

在过去十年里, we have operated an aircrane that holds 2,650 gallons of water or fire suppressant – the equivalent of five fire engines! It can be airborne in 15 minutes and only takes 45 seconds to refill its tank. We work with first responders to deploy this aircrane when needed, 在那段时间里, it has made more than 820 water drops to protect homes, 企业和社区.
