Pacific Gas and Electric Company

Oregon Trail EPC System Hardening

In late 2021, Wilson was awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract in Redding, California as part of Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E’s) Wildfire Safety Program.

Wilson was responsible for engineering, procuring, and constructing 16 miles of overhead system hardening and 3 miles of underground system hardening. This included the replacement of more than 500 poles and the reconductoring of nearly 100,000 ft. of new aluminum tree wire conductor. The system hardening work performed by Wilson enhanced PG&E’s electric system to better reflect the changing environmental conditions of their service area and to improve system resiliency.
