Last year, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. inspected 171,057 utility poles and chopped down 236,000 trees near its power lines, essential steps for preventing wildfires. PG&E inspectors flew over all 114,000 miles of the utility’s electricity distribution wires straddling Northern and Central California, as well as 18,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines. They used lidar, the laser version of radar, to check for tree branches growing too close to the wires, branches that could brush up against the lines and cause a spark. Other sensors deployed from the air checked for trees that might be dying, or that already had been killed by drought.
