Cost Effective Mitigation of Wildfire Risk Generated by Power Lines


Keywords: , , , , ,

The recently developed extremely accurate Micro- Stress Pole Testing (MSPT) technology can save a lot of money by elimination of costly replacements of poles which are prematurely rejected by presently used inaccurate pole inspection methods. This ability of the MSPT has been consistently proven by many pilot tests and validation pole break tests. Regarding the urgent need to reduce the risk of wildfires the MSPT appears to be an ideal tool to accurately check and minimize the number of poles which must be replaced for stronger poles capable to safely support new larger and heavier insulated wires. Money saved in this way can be used for wider and faster application of insulated wires at no additional cost.
