SCE - Track 1 Updated Workplan Report – January 15, 2021 Introduction and Summary SCE submits this report to address Track 1 matters and pole data items identified in the D.20-07004 in I.17-06-027 issued by the Commission on July 21, 2020, to update SCE’s Track 1 workplan originally submitted on October 2, 2019, and to correct an error in D.20-07-004 as prescribed in D.20-11-019. 1. Goals and objectives The goal of this workplan is to provide qualifying jurisdictional entities (pole attachers) and Commission staff electronic access to SCE’s refreshed data portal (SPIDAMin). SCE plans to update the existing external facing pole information portal, ‘SPIDAMin®’ 1 to meet all requirements set forth in D.20-07-004 and make the correction set forth in D.20-11-019. 2. Current Data The following information is currently available to qualifying jurisdictional entities via SCE’s SPIDAMin portal. • Unique identifier of pole (pole number) • Pole location information (GIS coordinates) • Pole location information (address) • Install date (or ‘start-up’ date) • Pole length, class, and material • Ownership information   Space / grade info (if available)  • Name of other joint owners percentage ownership of each joint owner(s) (if available) Wood pole intrusive test data:  Date of last test  test result The SPIDAMin portal also includes a geo-spatial map that allows the user to select a specific pole and view the information listed above. 1 SCE’s current SPIDAMin portal operating version is 1

SCE - Track 1 Updated Workplan Report – January 15, 2021 • Available pole information is researchable on a pole by pole basis • Pole information can be viewed but not exported 3. Updates to SCE SPIDAMin Data Portal A. In accordance with ordering paragraph 2 of D.20-07-004 SCE’s IT department will work collaboratively with SPIDAWeb LLC technicians to develop new or improved interface solutions to extract relevant information from SCE’s work management system (SAP). SCE believes it will be able to make the following information researchable and exportable via SPIDAMin. i. Unique identifier of pole includes, at a minimum and by each service territory, a pole number and address (either street or some other easily identifiable address system) on a Geospatial map and should be included in the database. ii. Each of the five pole owners must have, at a minimum, a Geographic Information System accessible to attachers, pole owners, and Commission staff which includes the latitude/longitude coordinates, address (if available), and service territory for locating the poles. iii. High Fire Threat District tiers where the pole is located. iv. The poles’ class, height, tree species, material circumference, and latest loading information. v. The year the pole was installed. vi. Joint pole ownership information including the name of joint owners and percentage of ownership of the pole. vii. Intrusive test data including the date of last intrusive test, type of test, results of the test, and any corrective action that has been or will be taken in response to the test. viii. The number and date of each attachment application, and pole loading information, if any. ix. Notice of pending pole replacement or reinforcement including the reason for the replacement or reinforcement, the proposed scope of work, 2

SCE will also comply with the Track 1 Work Plan modification indicated in Ordering Paragraph 2 of D.20-07-004 and correction in Ordering Paragraph 1 of D.20-11-019.. i. SCE will incorporate a data glossary into the data portal. The purpose of the data glossary is to identify and document the data fields provided in the data portal, including short description, data format, data field type, and other metadata that will enable users to understand and use the data. SCE’s portal shall include a Data Glossary and will make sure that wherever feasible, the terms in the 5 pole owners glossaries mean the same thing. No terms in any of the 5 pole owners Data Glossaries shall contradict terms as defined in the Commission’s General Orders. ii. The 5 pole owners will continue convene with the working group to reach a consensus recommendation for the data elements that will use common data definitions. iii. The 5 pole owners have reached agreement on the definitions of the terms in the data glossary. iv. All 10 pole datapoints of pole data for jointly and solely owned poles shall be provided through SCE’s Data Portals unless the datapoints are specifically allowed to be ‘if available’ AND are not available. Data for the ten data fields must be searchable and exportable as machine readable data and through the web-based interactive portal. v. SCE will continue to convene in a working group with the 5 pole owners to develop a consensus recommendation for the method to be used for sharing or synchronizing data for the ten key data elements related to joint-owned poles with the other joint pole owner(s). vi. All 10 pole datapoints will be searchable by two years from the issuance of D.20-07-004 via the pole owners Data Portals, including by pole number, latitude/longitude or Address location. 3

SCE - Track 1 Updated Workplan Report – January 15, 2021 vii. Capability for Data Portal pole locational and identifying information will be implemented in some form by two years from the date of D.20-07-004 for poles that do not have locational and identifiable information. viii. The Data Portal shall allow for selecting and viewing multiple poles on a geospatial map using polygons and multi-pole selection capabilities. ix. The Data Portal shall display the 10 pole datapoints for selected poles and allow the information to be viewed and exportable as machine readable data for at least 10 poles by one year and for at least 1,000 poles by two years from the date of D.20-07-004. x. Within 60 days of D.20-07-004, SCE will file and serve its updated Track 1 Workplan to demonstrate compliance with D.20-07-004 ordered modifications by Tier 2 Advice Letter for review by the Energy Division. xi. Initial electronic access to the pole data in the newly expanded and/or created data portal shall be available within one year from the date of D.20-07-004. xii.
