CSAC Urges CPUC to Review Public Safety Power Shutdown After-action Reports

June 25, 2020

CSAC and a coalition of local government advocates, consumer rights groups, and telecommunications companies have filed a joint motion to require the California Public Utilities Commission to review PSPS after-action reports in order to make a determination on whether the benefits of the decision to de-energize outweighed potential impacts to public safety.

Current law requires Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) to file after-action reports and the coalition is urging the CPUC to review these reports to determine reasonableness as relating to the use of PSPS. CSAC has strongly advocated that the use of PSPS should be a tool last resort. The CPUC’s review of these after action reports will help provide better decision-making frameworks for IOUs ahead of the upcoming fire season.
