Serious Wildfire & Liability Risk
Undeniably, recent years have painfully demonstrated that Wildfire Risk, and Utility Liability concerns are real.
As the US notably experienced in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, grid asset failures and non-grid induced events can lead to devastating wildfires, billions of dollars in damage, personal injury, loss of life, enormous Greenhouse Gas emissions, and a wake of post-event destruction and rebuilding costs.
Sadly, the November 2018 Paradise California event accentuated previously unimagined risks and liabilities associated with wildfire impacts; including tremendous human suffering, community devastation, significant legal costs, government intervention, and bankruptcy of a leading US utility.
In 2020, California wildfires expelled an estimated 110 Million Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide emissions. That's nearly 76% the annual emissions of California's 31.6+ Million automobiles.
Clearly, electricity operators require new technologies and funding support to ensure safe and reliable service, while also protecting their local communities and the surrounding environment.
