Smarter Outlets Are Safer

Ground fault circuit interrupter outlets (GFCIs) are designed to protect against electric shock in kitchens, baths, and places where electricity can come into contact with water. They shut off electricity when needed—and can help save lives. Talk to your electrician to learn more.

Wildfire Safety

To reduce wildfire threats and improve safety, we are working to bolster wildfire prevention, put in place new and enhanced safety measures and make the electric system more resilient.

Upgrading Utility Poles

You may have seen crews in your neighborhood lately. We’re inspecting poles, and repairing or replacing those that don’t meet required standards. It’s part of our ongoing investment in maintenance, safety and repair to ensure that we continue to deliver reliable electric service. Our pole-loading assessment takes about 30 minutes, and crews don’t need to access your home or building. The following approved contractors will perform the inspections, assessments, and repairs:

  • Cyient
  • Davey Tree Company
  • Inland-Metro Services, Inc. (IMS)
  • Intec Services
  • Quanta Utility Engineering Services (QUES)
  • PAR
  • RDI Engineering
  • Utility Data Contractors (UDC)
