Where to start...

What's the best approach for me?

Every situation is different. Wildfire mitigation planning is not a single, off-the-shelf solution that fits every utility’s needs. In fact, it can be quite an overwhelming challenge to tackle. So where do you start? How do you begin assessing your wildfire mitigation risks and the potential solutions to address them?

 

Start here with an eGuide that provides a step-by-step approach to helping you define the path to your wildfire mitigation plan. 

A complicated landscape

It will take collaboration to meet wildfire mitigation goals.

There is no doubt, we all agree: we need a plan to address wildfire risks. Who are the key players in making these decisions and what are their unique goals?

 

Check out this complicated landscape and learn how technology can be the common denominator.

The world’s fastest circuit breaker

It just takes a spark

Learn how Siemens’ ultra-fast fault clearing circuit breaker – the Fusesaver – can significantly reduce the risk of a spark from an electrical arc igniting a wildfire.

Technology you can count on

Reduced maintenance Compact Modular Recloser

Many wildfires start in rural areas where it may be difficult to regularly monitor the health of the energy infrastructure. So in these environments, reliability is paramount. 

 

Learn how Siemens has replaced the traditional, single-phase, hydraulic recloser, which requires regular inspection and maintenance, with its Compact Modular Recloser (CMR). The CMR:

 

  • Requires less maintenance
  • Utilizes line voltage for power
  • Has wireless communications that enable in-service reconfiguration and access to event log and profiles.
Microgrid solutions keep the lights on

When extreme weather calls for a public safety shutoff…

For much of 2018 and 2019, fires raged in northern California. During one of the public safety shutoffs required to minimize risk of additional sparks, Blue Lake Rancheria leaned on their microgrid to keep their community – and surrounding communities – up and running and safe.
