Additional MI crews sent to restore power after Irma”

Consumers Energy says it is sending an additional 130 employees and contractors to help restore power in Georgia.

After sending hundreds to Florida to help restore power, the company is sending the employees and contractors to Georgia to assist in power restoration, Consumers Energy announced in a release.

Consumers Energy now has more than 350 people working on Irma-related outages. "We have been fortunate to receive assistance from out of state after severe weather in MI".

Packard continued, "We made this decision after carefully analyzing our current workload in MI and reviewing the weather forecasts".

During a storm in July, for example, crews from four states assisted Consumers Energy in its restoration work. About 20 support personnel are also coming from various locations across MI.

As many as 60,000 employees of electric utilities are in the south this week helping with Hurricane Irma recovery efforts.

More than 5.5 million customers in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and SC were without power as of 5 p.m. Tuesday, per the institute.

Besides sending workers, Consumers is also sending money.
