Electric System Seismic Safety and Reliability

This report describes the results of applied research being conducted under the direction of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) through support of the California Energy Commission (Commission), with the objective of systematically reducing earthquake risks to electric power in California. The earthquakes in California in 1989 and 1994 are a warning of the potential of even larger and more severe earthquakes to affect the state. Thus, evaluating and improving the post-earthquake functioning of electric power service is an important priority both for providers of that service and for their customers.
