Engineering Webinar Series: Fire Mitigation for Distribution Lines
July 11, 2023
Who Should Attend:
Engineering personnel and others who would benefit from an understanding of current electric utility engineering principles and practices.
To mitigate the risks of wildfires caused by the electric distribution system, many utilities are fire hardening their systems. We will discuss the electric distribution system components and line equipment and their potential risk for wildfires. We will also review changes in standards for the construction and maintenance of the distribution grid to reduce the risks of wildfires.
