Wildfires are a yearly threat to human life and property, forests and grasslands, and air quality, as well as a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. While not all wildfires are preventable, at Prescient, we believe that those caused by faulted power lines are. In this free 30-minute webinar, you will learn about Prescient's unique approach to wildfire risk assessments. We will also discuss recommended enhancements to power line design, maintenance, and protective relaying schemes, which electric utilities can implement to minimize the risk of their power lines sparking wildfires.
This webinar will be presented by Tony Sleva, President of Prescient Transmission Systems. Tony has more than 50 years of professional experience in the electric utility industry.
