PSPS Post-Event Report Template
A template prepared by the Commission’s Safety and Enforcement Division (SED) is to be used by electric investor-owned utilities when preparing and filing post-event and lessons learned reports following Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events. Utilities should rely on this template for future reporting.
PSPS Post-Event Reports

PSPS Post-Season Report Templates
Decision (D.) 21-06-034 required the Commission’s Safety and Enforcement Division (SED) develop a template for the electric investor-owned utilities (IOUs) to follow to report PSPS activities over the previous calendar year. The reports based on these templates are due to the Commission on March 1, 2022, for calendar year 2021 PSPS events.
The post-season report template is comprised of four (4) components:
POSTSR1 – a Word narrative report template
POSTSR2 – an Excel template for IOUs to describe customers de-energized by PSPS in terms of census tracts
POSTSR 2A: PSPS Data By Census Tract (Geospatial)
POSTSR 2B: PSPS Data By Census Tract (Non-Spatial)
POSTSR3 – an Excel template for IOUs to document costs associated with education and outreach surveys
POSTSR4 – an Excel template for IOUs to document complaints
PSPS Post-Season Data Report Template
The CPUC Safety and Enforcement Division (SED) developed the Post-Season Data Report (PSDR) template for electric Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs) to report data describing the performance of their implementation of public safety power shutoffs (PSPS) in calendar year 2021. The template is not required by D.21-06-034 and the template and reports based on it do not have to be filed and served on the service list nor are they subject to Party comments. The reports filed with SED will be made available on the public website, with the exception of any information protected as confidential.

- Identification of the circuits at greatest risk of de-energization during the upcoming wildfire season. The Report must include the number of times each circuit was de-energized during the prior four (4) calendar years, and describe all steps toward risk-reduction and de-energization mitigation for each circuit, including specific outreach and education efforts and efforts to identify and provide appropriate resiliency support to customers with access and functional needs on each circuit.
