Xcel Energy crews head to Puerto Rico to help with power restoration

Xcel Energy crews head to Puerto Rico to help with power restoration”

Arizona Public Service Company crews head to Puerto Rico to assist with power restoration efforts. Reportedly, Captain Aaron Anderson, the chief operating officer of the USA based Army corps of Engineers, is leading the project, in conjunction with the support from other partners like USACE Recovery Field Office, Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA), and FEMA. Sources claim, the team has been mostly focusing on southeastern coasts that suffered the catastrophic aftermath of Hurricane Maria toward the end of past year.

The company said they have sent approximately 65 line workers and support staff to help return power to the island. Hundreds of thousands of people still remain without power after Hurricane Maria made landfall on September 20th.

Xcel Energy trucks were loaded onto barges in Lake Charles, Louisiana earlier this month and are on their way there now.

Xcel Energy crews are expected to work in Caguas, a mountainous and remote region in the southeast area of the island. This is where the storm came inland and the damage is significant.

APS spokeswoman Annie Degraw said the crews will join the almost 5,500 restoration workers already on the island.

The Xcel Energy workers will bring the total number of personnel working on restoration efforts to more than 5,500, the utility said.
