Worst-case scenario fires/wildfires are now becoming common; no longer are they viewed as “it will never happen to us”. Too many communities have endured the wrath of catastrophic wildfires resulting from grid-asset failures, and non-grid induced events (e.g., lightning, arson).
Regardless of the cause of these fires/wildfires, the need for fire mitigation solutions is clearly imperative. By leveraging our existing overhead transformer fleets, we can establish cost-effective, “Always-On”, outdoor overhead sensor network canopies to protect our communities from fire/wildfire events. Specially designed, fast-to-install sensors will simultaneously provide fire/wildfire Prevention, Early Detection, Auto Alerts, and Situational Awareness; benefiting ALL stakeholders.
Reducing fire/wildfire occurrences, suppression costs, community rehabilitation costs, environmental damage, economic devastation, fatalities/injuries, liability costs, shareholder value erosion, and harmful Greenhouse Gas emissions can be simultaneously achieved via One Technology. One Solution = Multiple Gains.
