The largest single factor affecting utility grid resiliency, causing nearly 50% of power outages, is vegetation. With 50 million trees adjacent to above ground power lines and thousands of employee and contract personnel in the field, PG&E faces a logistical challenge every single day. In this presentation, learn how PG&E is using Dispatchr’s ArcGIS-based predictive analytics and mobile workforce solution to safely and cost-effectively protect the electrical grid for millions of customers.
