Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) sent 1,000 power line poles to Puerto Rico last week to help rebuild the electrical grid devastated by Hurricane Maria. The poles were salvaged during Hurricane Irma clean-up in North Florida. Since Nov. 3, FPL representatives have been on-site in Puerto Rico providing technical expertise and guidance to the restoration effort. "As we sought assistance from other energy companies in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, we provide like support to those whose energy grid has been damaged by natural disasters and help bring life back to normal for our fellow Americans,” said Eric Silagy, FPL’s president and CEO. Additionally, 300 employees and contractors helped restore power in Maine, impacted by October’s nor'easter.
