SDG&E Strategic Undergrounding Program

Strategic undergrounding is one of several projects in SDG&E’s Wildfire Mitigation Plan that aims to significantly reduce the chances of a utility-related wildfire. The program also helps reduce PSPS impacts on important facilities like schools, libraries, medical centers and fire stations.

We’ve helped SDG&E implement and continue to improve their comprehensive wildfire risk mitigation program.
