Evolving climate conditions throughout California have made wildfires a year-round concern to many communities. With about a quarter of SCE’s service area in high-risk fire areas, addressing the prevention and mitigation of wildfires is one of our top priorities. SCE has invested in a variety of improvements and innovations to help prevent wildfires and act quickly when they occur.
How Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) Help Prevent Wildfires
During high-risk conditions for a wildfire, we may temporarily shut off power to your neighborhood. This can prevent our electric system from becoming a source of ignition. Proactive shutoffs are temporary and meant to keep you and your community safe. Learn more about PSPS and sign up for alerts here.
Sign up for alerts so you know when a Public Safety Power Shutoff may occur and when your power is restored.
