About the Oregon Wildfire Protection Plan (now referred to as the Wildfire Mitigation Plan)
 
On August 25, 2020, the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) initiated an informal rulemaking process (Docket No. AR 638) to address electric utility risk-based wildfire protection plans. The rulemaking process incorporates the recommendations of the Governor's Council on Wildfire Response and the guidance issued in the Governor's Executive Order 20-04. The Pacific Power Oregon Wildfire Protection Plan (now referred to as the Wildfire Mitigation Plan) specifically guides the mitigation strategies that will be deployed in Oregon, consistent with OAR 860-300-0002 effective November 30, 2021, per Order No. 21-440. These efforts are designed to reduce the probability of utility related wildfires.
