Public Utilities Regulatory Analyst V (Safety)
Under the direction of the Program & Project Supervisor, the incumbent’s primary assignments are related to analyzing critical risks facing California electric utilities and their customers, examining the effectiveness of utility programs to mitigate risk (including, but not limited to, wildfire mitigation programs and de-energization), and estimating financial impacts of safety measures or catastrophic events. The incumbent may be assigned work in other areas and branches of the organization, as directed.
The PURA V receives and develops assignments after clearing the program objectives with their Supervisor. Supervisors review work for accuracy and to assure consistency with existing CPUC policies but incumbents are expected to independently exercise full operational responsibility, which may also require the coordination of several technical professional staff of up to five other technical staff. Incumbent’s assignments often involve areas of expertise surrounding most of the utilities in an industry. Incumbent’s assignments may receive close attention from the press, legislature, or public interest groups.
