California ISO 7/30/19 Informational Call: Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Program
The California ISO will host a public conference call on July 30, 2019 to discuss the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) program and its role as the grid operator in a PSPS event.
To reduce wildfire risk, California’s utilities may need to proactively turn off power, or de-energize electrical lines during extreme weather conditions. We will discuss the coordination and communication that will occur if there are operational impacts that could occur based on a PSPS event. The investor owned utilities (Pacific Gas & Electric Corp., Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas & Electric), will be available to answer questions that may pertain directly to their programs.
A web conference will be available for stakeholder convenience. In addition, the meeting will be recorded and the video file, along with the presentation, will be posted on the Summer Readiness and Flex Alerts webpage at http://www.caiso.com/about/Pages/News/SummerReadiness-FlexAlerts.aspx#PSPS. The recording is for informational and convenience purposes only, and any related transcriptions should not be reprinted without ISO’s permission.
