Support for San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) on their Fire Risk Mitigation
project (FiRM) for overhead distribution lines. Engineering and PLS-CADD design was
performed for the hardening projects for the overhead 12kV distribution system. The team has
performed design, PLS-CADD modeling, and quality assurance reviews of multiple 12kV circuits
for the replacement of wood poles with steel poles, and the replacement of copper wire. This
is a distribution hardening project for the area’s most at risk for wildfires in efforts to
provide safe and reliable energy for a critical service territory.
