Planet Helps San Diego Gas & Electric Monitor Vegetation Health

On-Demand Webinar

Wildfire activity in the United States is changing dangerously, particularly in the west, as conditions become hotter and drier due to climate change. Companies like San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) work with Planet to monitor vegetation health and conditions within their service areas to manage risk of wildfires during the dry season.

Register for this webinar and learn:
  • How Planet and SDG&E generate weekly reports of vegetation health and conditions (using NDVI) to feed into vegetation dryness models
  • Understand how SDG&E monitors risk by modeling vegetation growth to estimating the potential of dry vegetation for fueling wildfire hazards
  • How vegetation health monitoring, moisture content in the air, live vegetation and dead vegetation feed into the Fire Potential Index (FPI) indicating receptiveness to fires
