SCE Releases Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Corrective Plan

In compliance with the Public Utilities Commission's (PUC) requirement issued January 19, 2021, Southern California Edison (SCE) released its corrective action plan for its Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) program. Under SCE's PSPS, it can, has and will shut off power proactively to large segments of communities, including Malibu, to prevent its equipment from starting catastrophic wildfires during extreme fire weather conditions. SCE created the corrective plan in response to feedback and widespread complaints from customers, regulators, government officials, and public safety partners: they must do more to reduce the need for PSPS; perform coordination, communication, de-energization, and re-energization protocols more effectively when PSPS is necessary; share their wildfire mitigation and PSPS-related plans in a clear and useful manner; and support their customers, especially Medical Baseline customers and customers with access and functional needs (AFN), with more resiliency options. 

See the entire plan, including details about SCE's Wildfire Mitigation Plan to harden the grid to reduce ignitions and improve system resiliency (reducing infrastructure damage and improving power restoration time during and after a fire). 

For more information about SCE's PSPS program, and how to prepare for power outages, visit the City's PSPS webpage.
