Gulf Power Crews Deploy To Restore Power After Irma

Gulf Power Crews Deploy To Restore Power After Irma”

As we did throughout Hurricane Harvey, EEI and the electric power industry are working through the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council (ESCC) to coordinate with the federal government, other segments of the industry, and critical infrastructure operators. "Situational awareness is high".

As people across the Tampa Bay area and Florida get their lights turned back on, millions on Tuesday are still waking up in the dark.

While wildfires, earthquakes and blizzards are not unusual for California crew members, Tostado said alligators present a hazard they are not accustomed to. "This was an extremely productive call, and we already are making significant progress in securing additional crews".

The utility reported earlier Tuesday that 4.4 million customers had lost power due to Hurricane Irma and 1.1 million had been restored. They say it will be the largest restoration process in history. "This will help to speed restoration times, and I truly appreciate the support of the entire industry in this effort". "If customers are calling us that they don't have power, we know they don't have power".

"For customers in the hardest hit areas that require rebuilding the system, this may take a week or more", Duke Energy said.

Florida utilities invested billions into their systems after devastating hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005 in order to make them more resilient and easier to restore after a storm.

FPL, the state's largest utility, said its outages dipped to around 2.5 million customers by Tuesday evening from a peak of more than 3.6 million on Monday morning, but that was still more than half of its customers. "We also have restoration crews in the field beginning work".

Meanwhile, an outage map kept by Georgia EMC, a trade association representing the state's 41 electric cooperatives, showed more than 471,000 affected by power outages.

Georgia Power, a subsidiary of Southern Co., said it expected "widespread, extensive damage due to high winds, heavy rain and fallen trees" and was prepared to mobilize roughly 3,400 fix workers.

Utility companies urged their customers to stay safe by avoiding downed power lines and standing water.

"Gulf Power is part of a mutual assistance network consisting of dozens of utilities".
